Want to review this course?

Thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing and well tutored. It is a course most people could continue do at home as the materials are inexpensive. If a course is good the end result reflect this fact and all those on the course made successful necklaces. I would recommend this course to all who enjoy jewellery making.


Clear instructions
Lovely paint colours
Good bead selection
Useful to have plenty of examples to look at for inspiration
Friendly environment


The method of bead-making was explained clearly with a good demonstration of the technique, and we were able to try bead preparation ourselves. The ingredients used are not expensive or difficult to get hold of, and so I felt that I would be happy to try the technique again in the future. The fun part was the decoration of the beads, which used not just paints but tissue paper. This also was clearly demonstrated, so that despite being a novice in handicrafts I was able to decorate enough beads to a high enough standard that I am happy to wear the resulting necklace. Another benefit of being part of a group was getting inspiration from others and being encouraged to try new and unusual combinations. I thoroughly enjoyed the day.
