I’ll be forever thankful to the friend who recommended SquarePeg jewellery courses to me. I did my first course at the beginning of 2013 and I’m still going!
SquarePeg is a studio enterprise in a large warehouse style space in Marrickville.
With space for 11 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.
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?
Margarita Sampson, Squarepegger since November, 2014
