I cannot rave about this course enough, definitely the best thing on offer in Sheffield. I've been attending for just over a year now and learnt so many new skills, met lovely helpful friendly people and found a hobby I am in love with. I suggest this course to everyone I meet and talk about jewellery with. If you're thinking about doing it, then my advice is just get it booked and do it, I wish I had sooner

Very well equipped studio, with knowledgeable tutor , able to tune in to whatever level you are at with a particular idea, technique. Excellent value for money. Classes are never overcrowded, and are friendly. Couldn't be better really!

The course was interesting and absorbing and I learned some new skills and gained a lovely pair of silver earrings by the end of the morning. Would really recommend and would love to do another course

I did the silver earrings half day course. We were shown lots of techniques and got to practice on aluminium before deciding on what silver earrings to make. Felt really relaxed and was really pleased with my earrings. Can't believe we got through so much in a morning without feeling rushed! Would definitely recommend this as a treat or gift and an intro to jewellery making.

Oh for more Sundays like this! Jules was friendly, welcoming, extremely knowledgeable, creative and a patient teacher. The workshop is extremely well equipped and comfortable. We started with a practice ring and got used to techniques and tools, then after lunch we started our final silver rings. It was fun, fiddly and fabulously satisfying. I am so proud of the finished result and am looking for excuses to go back and make something else. I’m hoping to bring my 13yo son next time. Thank you so much Budgie Galore!

I just love Jules courses. I'm about to start my third and have learned so much. It's very absorbing and the group is friendly and helpful. It's just delightful and I am amazed at the beautiful things I have made already.

I attended Making a Ring in a day and had the most brilliant day. I had no idea that I would leave with a ring to be proud of, that has since had many compliments. The group of people on the day were all lovely and Jules is the most patient, informative and helpful teacher. I left feeling proud of all that I had learnt and keen to attend more of the workshops/courses.

I got a place on the Silver Jewellery making workshop for Christmas. It was a great present! I had a lovely time on the course. We learned several different techniques and had plenty of time and materials to practice with before we did our final pieces in silver. Everyone made something special and individual that they were proud of and I'm wearing the pendant I made today! Highly recommended.

I enjoyed myself on the 4 week taster course, run by Jules and Melissa and came away with quite a few jewellery items that I’d learnt how to make. The workshop is very well equipped with plenty of tools available for everyone.

It’s a fantastic course-I have now been on four lots of sessions at Studio Budgie Galore and hope to keep going. The first introductory session introduced all of the techniques and now the ongoing classes enable me to be more creative making lots of different pieces under the supervision of Melissa and Jules. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of giving this a try.

I had a wonderful day with Jules on the Silver Jewellery making day recently, the day was very well structured and the tuition was brilliant. I made a beautiful necklace using loads of the skills we were taught and I am looking forward to coming back for the 8 week course in April.

Great time making a Ring in a Day. Amazed how much I achieved in one day and very happy with the finished result. Looking forward to making something else in the future. Great tuition, venue and workshop. An enjoyable and satisfying way to spend a day. Thanks Jules!

I had a lovely day making rings with Julie, she made sure we understood all the processes we were using, gave plenty of time for each stage and ensured we ended the day with a ring we were proud to have made.
Jill Nichols - - #13132
Learned a huge amount from Julie. very patient and able to explain the processes involved in silver jewellery making.
Feel extremely proud of the earrings I produced.
This was a Christmas gift but confident it was value for money. I would definitely go back.

Whether you've made jewellery for years or are looking for an opportunity to try it for the first time, Jules will make you feel welcome and capable. She's a really knowledgeable tutor and has a great way of encouraging and developing ideas with you, helping you to understand the best way forward with a particular project, and offering different options for creating your own unique pieces of work. I love being at the studio and would go much more often if I could. It's very well-equipped and the people who go to the classes are always so friendly and eager to learn / share ideas. If you're thinking of trying out Budgie Galore I'd really recommend giving it a go!
