I attended a course with Kim in March 2020, alongside my 83-year-old mum and 12-year-old daughter. We all had a fantastic time and came away unbelievably satisfied with our bead creations. Kim was patient, fun, and very welcoming, and was able to pitch her explanations to meet our very different learning needs. The safety aspect of working with flame and glass was really well managed, and I would recommend this course to anyone with reasonable hand dexterity who wants to see results quickly. We were all able to make jewellery, bookmarks and key rings with our beads thanks to an excellent assortment of findings made available by Kim.
Had a fantastic morning on this course. Kim was very welcoming and the venue was great and accessible, plenty of refreshments. We had great fun learning how to make lampwork beads. It is a fascinating process. We were both very happy with our beautiful makes. Great to have something to treasure at the end. I bought the course as a Christmas present for my friend Jan. Great value for money and would recommend to anyone.

What a fantastic afternoon! My sister-in-law and I took part in a taster course as a Christmas present from my husband. Kim was so welcoming and explained everything so well. We were both so proud of the beautiful beads and jewellery we produced under her excellent guidance. Thank you Kim for a lovely afternoon!
Kim was very friendly and accomodating as well as a great teacher. I booked this activity for myself and a friend and we both had an amazing time, we can't wait to go back! We made 20 beads between us in 2 hours and had an hour for making them into accessories afterwards. Kim was excellent with her instruction and advice and we managed to make some really beautiful beads. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone in to their crafts! Kim makes you feel aware but comfortable when working with the flame and is very encouraging.
An excellent course, with just the right mix of information and hands-on experience. I trusted Kim completely and felt very safe around the tools and equipment. In just a morning we created our own beads from scratch and created a beautiful necklace.
Kim was really clear in her instructions, very positive and very generous with her time and all her accessories so my daughter and I left with bags of beautiful item we had made. A great experience.
I came with 2 friends and we had so much fun. We made several pieces of jewellery and they were really very professional.Kim was so patient and helped us all the way with all materials included it was fantastic value for money. I am coming with Mum next for her Birthday treat, she will just love it too.
An lovely morning spent at Kim’s with a friend making glass beads. Kim is friendly, very patient and encouraging. We both came away with lovely necklaces. I never thought that I would end up with any thing that would be capable of being worn, but my necklace looks really quite professional ☺️ and I will be wearing it with pride! Great way of spending a morning learning a new skill. Thanks!
Response from Bethyboobeads:Thank you Ruth, you were amazing and went home with a necklace to treasure. xx
BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT EVER...came today with Hubby, fab day with great tuition and lovely items to cherish.Kim was just the best. I am coming again as we loved it and were surprisingly good at it !!
Received a voucher as a gift for Christmas. I did this workshop this morning with Kim. Thoroughly enjoyed it and produced lots of beads. She was fun, patient and really informative. The atmosphere is relaxed and you can create in a style to suit you or take home the beads and make things in your own time if you prefer. Highly recommend. Next time I’ll bring along a friend too. Thanks, Kim.
Treated my husband to a 3 hr taster session. We both loved it and made great items. Kim was patient, calm and allowed us to use all of her wonderful coloured glass. We are coming back and treating Mum next time as just up her street. It is really great fun.....Thanks Kim
My daughter and I went for a post-exam treat and it was a perfect morning. Kim is a lovely and brilliant teacher, let us get on with making beads and just guided us as needed. We made some beautiful beads and then made them into jewellery. Loved it and highly recommend it! Thanks Kim
We had a fascinating, absorbing and fun afternoon learning about bead making and putting it into practice. Kim's welcome was very warm and her instructions natural and prefectly judged for each individual. There was an amazing range of materials both to make the beads with and to construct pieces with the beads afterwards. We were all thrilled with the experience and would highly recommend it to anyone.
