Testimonials

I organized our staff fun off-site here for a candle making workshop! We were a group of 18 and the teacher did such an amazing job in leading us the entire time. She was engaging, patient, and organized. Our staff really enjoyed this time to be creative and it was really relaxing and so much fun to do as a group.

Rare Bird is a warm, spirited environment, so conducive to creative work. All the gals are sweet and helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Great workshop choices too!

This place makes me so happy! They have a diverse, curated selection of local jewelry that I always drool over, as well as original art pieces, housewares and clothing. It's a perfect spot to shop for for women, men and kids! I love getting gifts there. The owners are artists, and the staff are great people, and lovely to chat with.

I was extremely impressed with the beauty of Rare Bird's makers studio, the professionalism of the staff, as well as the well-planned nature of the workshop itself. The teacher was knowledgable and kind.

A great addition to the Piedmont neighborhood, the Makers' Studio classes are a great opportunity to explore a new craft with a professional in the field and in an environment that's supports creativity over perfection.

I am so happy that you have these classes! Being able to have a creative outlet without having to leave my baby behind is wonderful. Thank you! Please keep them coming!

"Lovely evening with beautiful women. Erica & Shannon held space for us to manifest ourselves, share, allowing for learning and listening to emerge in a soothing and creative way. A healing and inspiring journey. Grateful for the space, and these beautiful ladies!"

After sharing beautiful impressionist work from many artists we got to try out a lot of techniques before attempting a "real piece". I learned a lot of techniques and look forward to using them in future projects. Have already registered for my next class.

We had such fun making prints for the first time! We came home with such pretty art for our home. The studio was tranquil and welcoming, and the instructor was great with the kiddos. And I had a blast too. Would encourage anyone to take a class here!
