"My friend and I had a fabulous time with Kim. Never done this before and seeing each individual bead form was exciting. Need to be aware you are working with a naked flame so need a steady hand, and to hold your nerve when you think it's going wrong... however, Kim was always on hand and at the ready to save us 😁. An enjoyable day."

" You were both a pleasure to teach, and very talented ladies, thank you so much for booking and so glad you had a lovely time xx"

"What a brilliant afternoon! I booked this course at the last minute, just for myself because I was feeling the January blues, and was looking for a distraction. Couldn't have picked anything better! Kim is a wonderful teacher, patient and full of good humour. She is very generous with her time and advice, and with the materials. I managed to make loads of lovely glass beads, and Kim helped me to make a beautiful bead bracelet as well. I can’t recommend this course enough; I had a great time! (And my January blues are gone 😊)"

Bethyboobeads responded:

" I am so pleased you managed to pick this course and have a lovely time. You are very talented lady and will go onto make some beautiful craft items yourself, thank you so much, it was a pleasure to meet you x"

"We had THE best afternoon with Kim! What a fantastic thing to do and she’s a great teacher, we made 7 beads each and then got to create our own jewellery/bookmarks and bag charms with our handiwork and other sparkles and beautiful beads that Kim had made earlier… and we were spoilt with sweet treats, crisps drinks and nibbles as we were working! I can’t recommend enough! One of my friends couldn’t make it at the last minute and Kim went out of her way to send her a goody bag and ask after her. We were enjoying ourselves so much we totally lost track of time. A huge thank you for a very special experience Kim, we will definitely be back if you’d have us!? x"

Bethyboobeads responded:

" Many thanks Sophie, you were all a pleasure to have taught and so talented. It will be great to see you again and for your poor friend to have a lovely afternoon as well. So glad you love all your bits, they really did look fabulous. See you soon I hope and if not have a fabulous Christmas with the families xx"

"We had an absolutely amazing time! Kim is fantastic! From the moment we walked through the doors to the very end when we left with two completely unique necklaces, we were laughing, having a brilliant time, expertly guided, learned so much - and had coffee, biscuits and crisps! Give yourself a treat and book this course with Kim - she is brilliant, and you will come away with heirloom art you previously didn't think you could possibly make yourself."

Brenda Ratcliffe reviewed: FOR 2 PEOPLE 1 day, (2 crafts) Melt glass to make beads & make 3 embroideredcreative items.

"Liz and I spent an enjoyable afternoon (in March) with Kim, Liz learning to make beads and although I didn't make beads (my eyesight problem not Kim's fault) I did have a lovely discussion about machine embroidery - which prompted me to upgrade mine. Kim was very helpful in recommending a great Embroidery machine shop and alerting me that the prices of the machines were about to go up (I ordered with a day to spare, that saved me £600!). I was generously given free reign to make jewellery pieces from Kim's stash. Liz has now bought her own kit with the view to starting a small business. We would both highly recommend Kim courses."

"I had a really enjoyable session with Kim. She is an excellent teacher, calm and inspires confidence. Making the beads was not as hard as I'd imagined and Kim gave me help if I needed it but let me just get on and experiment and learn too. After making the beads we then put them together making a necklace and a key ring in my case. I was so pleased with the results."

Siân James reviewed: Embroidery machine in the hoop CREATIVE FUN...be astounded at what you can create.

"Kim was first class and her preparation for the session was very impressive. As I am a very inexperienced machine embroiderer, she dealt with all my questions and concerns in a very clear and sympathetic manner. I so enjoyed my session with her and left having a much better idea of how to utilise my machine and what it is actually capable of. During the session, I also created some items on the machine, which I'm very pleased with. I highly recommend Kim's classes and can say with confidence that her skills as a tutor are beyond impressive."

"We hugely enjoyed our morning learning a whole new skill with Kim. Kim was so warm and friendly and made us feel at ease immediately. She was a superb teacher and was as generous with her time and expertise as she was with all the materials needed to create a variety of different items to take home with us. There was an incredible choice of things to make too - and all the fabrics and threads to make them with. Don’t hesitate to book this course - you won’t be disappointed!"

Bethyboobeads responded:

Jemma reviewed: Flamework/Lampwork 3 hr beads taster.. super creative fun for 1 or more people

"I spent a wonderful afternoon yesterday making glass beads and jewellery/accessories with my two friends from university. From the moment we stepped in the door, Kim was so welcoming and so very generous with her time and knowledge; she’s a truly fantastic teacher. The girls and I only meet up a few times a year and we like to choose a creative activity to occupy us - we’ve done plenty of crafts together over the years, but were all complete beginners to lampwork. Yet with Kim’s expert tuition, all three of us created 6 beautifully different (and pretty round!) glass beads each, which we then turned into a variety of bookmarks, keyrings and bracelets. We’ll definitely be back for embroidery round two! xx"

Bethyboobeads responded:

" Thank you so much Jemma, it was a real pleasure having such a talented trio. You all are so creative and made some beautiful pieces that I know will be admired. Will love to see you all again. xx"

"What a wonderful afternoon spent with Kim making an array of beads. Being an absolute beginner, Kim was an excellent teacher and very attentive and patient. She was very welcoming and friendly and the set up was excellent. Such a wide range of colours and accessories, I ended up making 7 lovely stoking fillers for Christmas that i am overjoyed with. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to try something new and spend a relaxing afternoon in lovely company."
