" I always look forward to classes as I know that I will leave with several pieces and a sense of achievement. Classes are always friendly and fun. Birgit is very creative with lots of different projects on offer to suit everyone. She is patient and never makes you feel silly if you have made a mistake which is a real skill in a teacher." (Sharon)
"Just to say a big “thank you!” for Sunday. I had such an amazing time. The class was so much fun and I absolutely LOVED the shrink plastic! Going to assemble my necklace tonight. Think I`m going to be addicted to this now! " (Lynn)
"What a brilliant starter class! I learned so much in one short hour, and was so thrilled with my finished earrings - Birgit is patient and thorough and the learning space is organised and cozy, such a pleasant experience to relax and follow along. I highly recommend her classes and very much look forward to the next one too!" (Camilla on Hotcourses)
"I had an amazing experience in the jewellery intro course with Birgit! I didn't expect it was going to be that much fun and it made me feel very creative when I ended up making my own beautiful earrings!! Definitely going to try some other courses with her, she is a brilliant teacher." (Gemma on Tasterlab)
"I would like to say that I throughly enjoyed the [wire crochet] class on Saturday! It was lovely, calming and [Birgit is] a great teacher :) I have made another necklace already!" (Natalie)
"I started jewellery classes with Birgit three years ago as a complete novice. I had never made a piece of jewellery before (apart from a stretchy bracelet at primary school for Mothers' day)! But I don't think it counts.
By the end of my first lesson, I took away some earrings and a pendant which I made myself and I have not looked back since. I have made a new circle of friends, gained new skills and even sold some of my jewellery. I would really recommend Birgit classes to anyone who is looking for a new interest or hobby that is fun and very rewarding." (Cally)
"I have so enjoyed the course with you and the girls over the last month or so and have learned so much!! It's so relaxing coming to class and learning new techniques and just chattering away - it's a lovely environment and a super place to unwind from the busy stresses of life!! thanks." (Keeley)
"I took inspiration from our recent pins and broach workshop to make [a] pendant which I can't stop wearing! Three people at work have admired it asking what I would charge. A senior consultant declared that it was beautiful, he imagined I could make a good business selling items like this and that I could sell it at an expensive price. Thank you." (Carol)
Ps my hubby has made a lovely tigers eye man necklace and worn it on his holiday to Jamaica.
