Studio Sundays is perfect for students who are keen to finish a project or start a new one and need some help and studio access. If you are eager to keep on making but don’t have a set up studio or can’t commit to a 7 week course Studio Sundays could be the answer.
The liquid enamel course is aimed at anyone interested in working with a different type of enamel, as a way of adding both colour and texture to copper and steel.
In the Silicone Mould Making for Jewellery workshop students of all skill sets learn how to make silicone moulds for jewellery and small objects. This is a fun and practical workshop in which students get to experiment with silicone and develop an understanding of how this process could be used to make multiples in materials like wax and resin.
SquarePeg Studio's 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. 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 and silversmithing combining a jewellery school and studio spaces. 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?
