International Beading Week

Get involved and celebrate the joy of beading

International Beading Week (IBW) is open each year to everyone who has a passion for beadwork or who would like to learn more about this creative art form.  Wherever you are in the world you can get involved for FREE!

The IBW theme for 2024 is 'Celebrations', commencing Saturday 27th July to Sunday 4th August.

We are celebrating 25 years of The Beadworkers Guild and bringing beaders together.  There will be lots of activities for you to enjoy including twelve FREE online Drop-in sessions, a Beaders Gift Exchange, and of course, lots of FREE beading patterns for you to enjoy, including new celebratory designs from a selection of designers from around the world.

You can also join our year-long Rainbow Challenge on Facebook and have fun taking part in some of the ongoing international projects.

We will continue to update the IBW pages as ne w information arrives, so keep checking back for further updates.
