In the beginner's class you make a necklace, bracelet and earrings. We were given big boxes of beads to rummage through but it was impossible to find enough matching beads to make our items so I got some beads from the shop floor without further charge. There's an option to buy a kit for £15 (normally £25) at the end. Tutor was a lovely guy who knew his stuff and had a great sense of humour. Thanks

I have been to classes at the No 1 Bead shop before and enjoyed this one. The tutor was very knowledgeable and experienced in bracelet making and I have learned some new skills. However class started and finished late and a cup of tea or coffee (as in previous classes) during the class would have been appreciated. Class also seemed a bit rushed at times, however I would recommend it.

It would be better and easier if the beads weren't all mixed up. A lot to fit in in 2hrs but the gent doing the course was v helpful and friendly.

I did the beginners class on Saturday. Everybody had a fantastic time and the teacher was so helpful. Items supplied were very good quality, I will definately go back to buy items and have a go at making something else. A Brady

Good class held by the staff who was very tolerant of learners, beads in boxes in a more organised fashion would help the beginners and speed up the process of preparation making classes would run to time. All in all good value.
