Do SquarePeg jewellery artists take on commissions?

Many of our resident artists are very busy with their own practice and do not generally have time to take on commission work. In saying that they are more likely to take on commissions than repairs!

If you want to try your luck you can email us images and detailed information about your requested commission job and we will float it with our resident artists in case any of them are able to help you.

Alternatively, please take a look at our current resident artists profiles via our Studios page and you can always reach out directly to a resident artist if you like the look of their work:

Can I do a make-up class if I miss a lesson?

As per our terms and conditions; it is the responsibility of the student to attend all classes, no make-up classes are available, for any reason.

As a small school, it is not possible to make provision for the many and varied requests and changes which can arise for our students.

We hope you can join us for all of your scheduled classes!

Does SquarePeg have waitlists for sold out classes?

We are very grateful that our classes often fill up very quickly – but this can lead to disappointment for those who miss out on a place!

If you have missed a spot in your preferred class please email us with the subject “Wait List Please” and outline in the email the class you are interested in and we will add you to our course waitlists and be sure to be in touch if a place becomes available.
