Bead Needle Weaving Course

Weekend Residential Bead Needle Weaving Course with Olive Humm

A weekend course making beaded jewellery in a 3 star hotel in Ipswich, Suffolk

Tutor: Olive Humm
Dates: Friday, 8 September – Sunday, 10 September 2017
Venue: Holiday Inn Copdock

Course Content

Spend a relaxing weekend making beautiful beaded jewellery with just beads and thread. Your tutor, Olive, has an ever growing selection of easy to follow patterns for you to use, with explanation diagrams as well as words.

Whether new to beading or more experienced, you will quickly be able to complete a first piece of jewellery before moving on to something more complex. And you will probably take home several pieces of completed work to wear or give as gifts along with some wonderful memories of time spent with like minded people. This weekend is ideal for beginners and beading improvers alike.

Olive has been teaching Bead Needle Weaving for over 20 years. She taught for Liberty Sewing School and at Missenden Abbey, along with many other Adult Education Centres.

She has almost unlimited patience, and a good sense of humour. Olive was a specialist advisor to City & Guilds, and has taught the Level 2 syllabus from its inception.

Course fees: £355

Course fees are £355 for an en suite room to include accommodation and the usual 3-star hotel services you expect from a Holiday Inn, all meals and refreshments, tuition and use of workroom. And you can relax with free use of the hotel’s Spirit Health Club complete with indoor pool, spa, sauna and Jacuzzi along with a well equipped gym. Your course starts with supper on Friday evening and a short introductory session, and runs through Saturday and Sunday to afternoon refreshments. You can arrive from 3 pm on the Friday afternoon and enjoy a few hours pampering yourself before your course begins.

Why Our Customers Love Our Courses

Textile artist Annette’s beautiful work contributed to my decision to learn more about patchwork and quilting.   Liza from Anglia Leisure Learning made sure everything ran smoothly – thank you Liza and Annette (Morgan the tutor);  it was a wonderful weekend.

Susan Rhodes

Most useful to learn new techniques, have good company and meet like-minded people; an inspiring stimulating and enjoyable weekend.

Jenny Macleod

I really enjoyed the course and you did and excellent job organising it. The highlight was falling in love with sewing again, after a five year gap. Thank you!

Heather McInroy

I have attended two courses in the last six months. Excellent tutors and excellent venues.  I’ve learnt so many new quilting techniques.  Can’t wait until the next one.

Yvonne Gill

Just home from an amazing residential course with the talented Cas Holmes. Everything was so easy, from booking, the meet and greet, information packs and support whilst away. The hotel was perfect and Liza Jones did a brilliant job keeping everything running smoothly. I am already researching my next course.
