Each branch of the BSV holds monthly meetings (except January). Members can bring along their beading, attend mini workshops, buy supplies from traders, solve their beading problems, and relax with other members.

Members pay a small attendance charge of $3 to assist with covering costs of venue hire, insurance, tea and coffee supplies. BYO mug.

All BSV monthly meetings start at 10.00am. After socialising for a while, we have a short update on what's happening then spend the rest of the day working on projects.

See the Events Calendar page for the latest workshops, classes and talks.

See the News page for the latest workshops and talks.

Numbers are limited in all technique workshops and must be booked in advance to ensure a place. Requirements list is provided upon enrolment.

Two hour paid workshops at Geelong cost $15.00 and usually run from 11.00 am – 1.00 pm and at Melbourne cost $20.00 and usually run from 12.30 – 2.30 pm. Note: These are now able to be booked and paid for online to secure the booking.

Samples of workshops are usually displayed at monthly meetings beforehand.

There are always lots of other beaders working on their own projects and there to lend a hand. Workshops are not mandatory at meetings, just an optional extra for members.

Always bring along your usual kit * to meetings if you are not sure what to work on.

* Usual kit comprises, beading needle, preferred beading thread, beading mat or board, scissors and anything else that helps you work.

** Bring along your beading, work on any unfinished projects or get help from a fellow member if you are stuck on something.
