Upcoming courses


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."

— Bradley, Happy Student


SquarePeg is home to 7 contemporary jewellers

SquarePeg Studios in Sydney has workspaces available for use by aspiring or practicing jewellery designers.

Our Studio

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?

— Margarita Sampson, Happy Tenant
