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. Plenty of food outlets close by, or BYO lunch if desired.

BSV monthly meetings start at 10.00 am. 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.

A requirements list is provided upon enrolment. Scroll down your Registration confirmation email to below the Additional Information heading, then click on the link supplied to download your list.

A two hour tutorial cost is $20.00 and usually runs from 12.30 – 2.30 pm.

Note: Members are able to book 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.
