“Perfect break for relaxation and achievement. Excellent value.” Sally Barrett

Summer is here, and with it, the opportunity to spend a couple of days indulging in your favourite pastimes. And one very popular hobby is beading, partly because you can produce beautiful pieces of jewellery and works of art which you can either wear or give as gifts.

Back in April a group of enthusiasts spent a weekend in Ipswich with tutor Olive Humm creating magnificent pieces while making new friends and catching up on news from others. And in their spare time, there was the welcoming swimming pool and leisure centre to explore.

“The whole course was most enjoyable. Well worth attending.” Mary Fox

Olive is running another similar weekend course over the weekend of 15-17 August at the Belstead Brook Hotel, an old coaching inn on the edge of Ipswich, Suffolk. While steeped in history, this hotel has many modern facilities and excellent cuisine.

So come and relax for a couple of days, and take home some pieces of your own unique bead-work.

Other courses running that weekend cover Patchwork, Photography, History and Ukulele for Beginners. All courses are £299 fully inclusive from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Full details from or 020 7834 1066. Website
