Spent yesterday with Eleanor making beads from pulped egg boxes. Eleanor is an excellent teacher and it was inspiring to see all the lovely painted beads she had made. After a delicious lunch with Eleanor and her partner Colin we were shown how to decorate the beads and make them into lovely necklaces and earrings. I also liked that we were a small group.

Hello Nicky,
Thankyou so much for that glowing review, it was lovely to meet you.
You might like to consider the beads plus day on 18 January.
I have been trying to email everybody about it but my computer has found some objection.
Regards

An excellent (and well-structured) course. During a single day, we made beads using recycled materials, decorated them and created our own necklaces. The end results were astonishingly good. The group (of all abilities, from keen beaders to absolute beginners) was small, so all got individual attention where necessary. And the home-cooked lunch was delicious!

Dear Sidney,
Thankyou so much for your revue. Delighted to hear you have been complemented on your ensemble including beads.

If Eve or Onoko, or any of you make some beads I would be happy to drop by with my drill and do the holes. - no problem.

I am thinking of offering birthday /celebration workshops. These would be for 2 hours, and consist of decorating premade beads, paint,gold, stars etc etc. Bring your own cake, tea/coffee supplied. Max 5 students if here, or more if held elsewhere.
£30 per student
regards
Eleanor

We enjoyed a relaxing day, as a group of friends, making unique and beautiful jewellery from egg boxes. Eleanor and her partner were both hospitable and inspirational. Their knowledge of their respective crafts is second to none. Thank you!

In my opinion this course had the WOW factor! do not hesitate to book. I Spent a wonderful day learning a new skill and left feeling so inspired taking home a beautiful necklace and earrings. Eleanor was so attentative and patient, provided clear instructions and help, shared all her tips with us and was generous with her materials. Eleanor’s partner prepared a delicious home made lunch which was a real delight. The day resides in my book of magical experiences!

It’s an amazing course where you start from making your own beads to painting them and creating a beautiful necklace to take home. It’s super interesting and hands on, very satisfying and therapeutic. Eleanor is a wonderful teacher and loves to share her techniques and insights.

I have just returned from a most enjoyable day of bead making. Eleanor was very welcoming and inspirational. I was delighted with the necklace and earrings I made, who would have thought you could make jewellery from egg boxes!
On top of the excellent tuition, Eleanor and her partner provided us with a delicious homemade lunch.
I would highly recommend this course to others.

A really fun day and managed to make two necklaces to take home. Not only that, I feel I have the knowledge to make some more at home. Eleanor is a great teacher and hostess- delicious lunch.

Eleanor was an excellent host and so knowledgeable and enthusiastic with the art of making necklaces. I could not believe that I would also be able to make ancient looking beads and make my own necklace. But with Eleanor's guidance I managed to produce a lovely piece of jewellry to be proud of.

An absolutely fabulous workshop. I loved Eleanor's beads when I saw them at Open Studios, and it was amazing to be able to try out techniques and go away with a lovely necklace. Very therapeutic! Thankyou Eleanor

Fantastic step by step processes to create something out of nothing. I have no craft experience whatsoever but this is presented by Eleanor so well that this is something everyone can do. Lots of hidden shortcuts to produce a beautiful handmade bead necklace and bracelet.

I had a very pleasant day doing this workshop. Everything was very well explained and prepared for us. Eleanor gave clear easy instruction and I left feeling confident that I would be able to make these beautiful beads at home. Everything used is easy to get hold of and not expensive. Thoroughly recommend.

A short note to say how much I enjoyed today's workshop. Please book me in for the next one. The Bead making, the soup, the pudding, the laughter, and the fun made it a great day
