SquarePeg is a great space with a very creative vibe. My experience with both a weekly workshop and intensive weekend workshops teaching particular jewellery techniques have been so instructive and fun

— Lyn, Happy Student


In this intensive one day workshop contemporary jeweller and experienced mould maker Erin Keys will take students through all the steps involved in mould making for jewellery and small objects. Students will be introduced to the uses and possibilities of mould making, as well as tools and materials that can be used.

Students will have the opportunity to make several moulds using models we have, and can also bring along their own models for discussion with the tutor. Erin will demonstrate how to make a block mould and how to cut and release the models, and share tips and tricks from her experiences making moulds for her artworks.

A wax model will be taken from the moulds made in class, and students can take their waxes to the commercial caster for casting into metal at a later date.

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.

This was an excellent course that was well facilitated, well planned and well delivered. A lot was achieved in one day and great written resources were distributed to ensure that we could pursue this in domestic situations. The tutor was extremely knowledgeable about the content being covered and gave students individual recommendations about their model making projects in a timely and considerate fashion.

An excellent course that I would highly recommend.
