SquarePeg Studios jewellery school has been a great stepping stone for me, from knowing nothing about jewellery making to landing a full time job in the industry in just half a year of classes. I attended both the weekly night classes and did as many weekend specialised classes I could. Both Majella and the team at SquarePeg were great teachers and really made learning about something I knew nothing about a real interest and has now become my new career. I can't speak more highly about my time there and recommend to anyone interested in jewellery making."
SquarePeg studio is unique space for making & learning all things jewellery. We offer studio spaces, day access and we have courses to suit every level, from beginners through to advanced students.
With space for 12 contemporary jewellers and a well-equipped workshop, a tenancy at SquarePeg is an opportunity to interact with a mix of emerging and established makers in a supportive and creative environment. As well as the studio space, we have a class room and day access area, and a number of tenants are also tutors in our jewellery school.
I'm really enjoying the variety of backgrounds and approaches everyone has - collectively there's a wealth of knowledge. You might be wrestling with a thorny problem and *bam* some-one has a brilliant solution you hadn't thought of. And we all like cake. What's not to love?
