Response from Bethyboobeads:

Great... having the pleasure of teaching such a talented person xx

We would highly recommend this crash beginners course to bead making! Kim was so welcoming and gave us guidance throughout the process, the tea and biscuits also helped.

I had a great time at Kim's with friends - she is a brilliant teacher and we all made lovely beads good enough to incorporate in jewellery on the day and she generously supplied all the fittings and helped us make ear rings, bracelets and necklaces. She made us feel very welcome, gave us scrummy snacks and was great company. I would definitely go again to gain more "advanced" skills. Thank you Kim!

This is a very professional set up with top grade equipment at your fingertips, and a teacher in Kim that wants you to enjoy yourself. We were put at ease right away and following Kim's demonstration, we were straight into bead making, which is a fascinating and rewarding skill.
What we both noted in particular was Kim's encouragement for us to try all the various glasses and finishes that she has, of which there is plenty, and with her standing by with helpful instruction we were able to make some truly unique beads.
This taster session scores a 10 out of 10 in our view, offers great value and we are sure to return.

What a wonderful lady kim is, made us feel welcome in her home from the moment we arrived, friendly and down to earth.
Once all the important stuff was done for health and safety purposes just incase we really messed up lol the rest of the time was spent really hands on with kim there to help with anything we got stuck with....the bead making was great fun and making them into wonderful gifts afterwards was so rewarding to do and was so pleased with the finished items.....has been a fantastic experience would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
Thank you kim.

I had a school project to complete for my course work and needed urgently some glass media to display. Kim fitted me in and was so kind.I made round beads, i amazed myself but i also made unusual shapes and was allowed to use any colours, even Kim's best ones,thank you Kim. I had more fun than ever i could have imagined.

Kim is so welcoming and offers not just great teaching and examples, but constant encouragement. I wasn't at all sure about this as I have a bad habit of getting annoyed at myself and giving up if I can't do something perfectly first time. I still wasn't perfect, but I'm hooked on the idea of trying again, as is my pater who came along to give it a whirl. Thank you Kim. You're amazing!
