December Prize Draw

Beads By Laura HQI've got a bit of a different prize for you this month. As it's the end of the year and I'm feeling (a little bit) festive I thought I'd make the prize a good'un and offer one of you the chance to come and melt glass with me in the New Year.

So if you've always fancied having a go at making beads, or if you already do and you would like to come and learn some new glassy things with me then leave a comment on this post or zap me an email and I will put everyone's names in the Lego Tombola for a chance to win.

The beadmaking session will be a five hour one (normally £130.00) and the resulting winner and I will organise a suitable date for next year.

I will draw the winner on Sunday 20th December.

Now, the draw is open to anyone anywhere BUT if you're not in the UK then I must stress that I am not going to pay for anyone's hotels, flights, ferries or other means of travel so please only enter the prize draw if you're up for travelling to me in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

Thank you and good luck!

I think it's madness but I can't pass on this chance! Oh well, IF I win and I'm rubbish at making beads, we can always talk about shoes!

This is a very generous prize! Having seen your wonderful beads I was planning to sign myself up for a taster session at a Bristol studio but this offer is too much to pass up! Please add my name to the lego tombola.

Merry Christmas, Sue.

Kella said...

A fabulous give away and though I live really far, I want a chance to win too. I'll just have to treat myself, which I haven't done in absolutely ages.

Thanks for giving away this give away.

Now I'll just cross everything and make a Christmas wish.

Wow what a fantastic prize, please put my name in for this as well, i have had a taster of lampworking and loved it and it would be amazing to learn how to make beads from someone as talented as yourself, fingers crossed. x

Celeste said...

Wow, what a great prize. I'm up north but I've been wanting to try this for years. The only courses I've seen are down south so I've decided the only way to get to play is to combine it with a holiday.

I only found your site a few weeks ago but I've become a regular reader. It's so inspiring, seeing you make all the pretty things.

Amazing prize! And no pathetically easy question with multiple-choice answers, like:

What does Laura make:
(a) bird tables
(b) beads
(c) hay while the sun shines?

Please put me in the draw!

Thanks,
Liz
