Only 2 days but I felt like I learnt so much! My confidence to try soldering on my own has really improved. Diane is an amazing teacher!

ABOUT THE COURSE

In the 2 day  Soldering School students will become more confident and gain expertise with the torch. Students will conquer the soldering processes of sweat soldering, butt joins and T joins while making a ring of geometric design with multiple solder joins.

Students will learn to recognise the colour changes in your metal that indicate different temperatures.

The processes of Keum-boo, lamination inlay and overlay will be demonstrated and practised.

Setting your work up for soldering and the order of construction will be a focus of this course. Bring your projects and questions to learn tips and tricks!

Our Tutors

Why choose a jewellery making course at SquarePeg Studios?

Our courses are taught by highly experienced and passionate teachers who are practising contemporary jewellers. This is the closest to an accredited course – without the assignments, stress and cost – that Sydney has to offer. Students not only gain the satisfaction of designing and hand-making their own piece of jewellery they also have the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at a contemporary professional jewellery studio while learning great new skills in jewellery techniques and design.


Highly recommend this course to anyone who lacks confidence/experience in soldering. I arrived with minimal soldering experience and no confidence in it. Diane was amazing - great knowledge and great teaching. And a great studio with plenty of equipment and space for students. Loved it - thank you!
