General Information

At our monthly meetings, there is a general sharing of knowledge and information about various types of beads, beadmaking techniques, etc. We have made fieldtrips like the one to the Sesame Excavation and we make regular visits to the Dipo festival.

We have been visited by international bead experts like the late Peter Francis Jr., who gave a lecture in the British Council Hall; and Jamey D. Allen, a well known authority on beads. Some of our members featured in films and documentaries. The Beadmaking industry in Ghana featured prominently in "World on a String", an award-winning documentary by Diana Friedberg.
