Artisan historic beadmaker Mike Poole presents a display of handmade reproduction Anglo-Saxon glass beads at this drop-in event. Join Mike and find out about the making and significance of these colourful beads. Matched as closely as possible to the originals in terms of colour, shape and construction, the beads are based on research in museums and from archaeological reports.
