ABOUT THE COURSE

The Jewellery Production course teaches students how to develop and refine a market-ready range from their existing collection. Through a process of design development, prototyping, marrying the most suitable production methods to your designs and going through the all-important correct pricing of work students will learn how to advance their collection to be ready for market. Our aim is to provide you with the skills and approaches you need to continue to develop your jewellery ranges into the future.

What You'll Learn

What do students learn?

Students will learn how to develop their existing designs to be manufactured in the most time and cost effective manner to ensure a viable product. Through a process of research, prototyping and investigating production methods, students distill their jewellery works to their most marketable strengths resulting in a dynamic and considered jewellery range.

What do students make?

This course is more theory focussed, but students may do some making in the context of prototyping. Students will create prototypes as needed to help in the development of their range

Take note – it is a prerequisite of this course that participants be already practicing jewellers with a body of work from which to draw upon and develop.

To get the most out of this class students will be required to complete homework between classes.

To ensure that students have the best learning experience, our Jewellery Production Course class size is capped at 10 students.

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.

Sheridan Kennedy

Meet your tutor

Sheridan Kennedy is a Queensland born, Sydney-based  jeweller whose practice includes public art, product design, private commissions, collaboration with fashion designers, and one-off artworks. She received her PhD in creative arts from the University of Sydney (Sydney College of the Arts) in 2010. Her thesis addressed the relationship between jewellery and wearer, across cultures and throughout history, and considered the question of how we might re-imagine and thus re-value the social role of the object. Prior to undertaking her PhD, she spent more than a decade creating fashion retail ranges and exhibiting her artwork in Australia, China, Japan, the UK, Italy and USA. Her work is represented in the collections of the Powerhouse Museum, Queensland Art Gallery, The Art Galleries of Western Australia and South Australia, and the National Gallery of Australia, and she has undertaken artist-in-residencies in UK, Spain and USA.


I've done courses elsewhere where we seem to only skim the surface, but this was right into the practical detail from the start and I left feeling confident to be able to work further on my own at home.
