Such a great course, I learnt some great new techniques that I will definitely be applying to to my final piece in the evening intermediate course. It has also helped me become more confident in my soldering. Diane is an amazing teacher, so much knowledge and just a really nice person, always a great weekend.

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.

Diane Appleby

Meet your tutor

Diane Appleby completed her Master of Art in Gold and Silversmithing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2003. She has taught in the Jewellery and Object Design Department, Sydney Institute of Technology, Design Centre Enmore, and at the College of Fine Art, University of NSW. Diane’s catalogue of work encompasses collections for exhibition and collaborations with clients on individual pieces. “My jewellery is designed to not only catch the eye, but to also feel delightful to wear. I like to play with colour, form and texture. I choose materials for their unique character, such as stones for their luminosity, metals to encapsulate strength, and silks for their sheen and rippling texture. I enjoy creating pieces with a precious presence. “At the heart of every design is an inspiration, whether I am creating a collection for an exhibition or working with a client to create a uniquely personal piece. I find the satisfaction of bringing a concept to life from a few simple sketches to a finished form extremely exciting.”  


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!
