SquarePeg's studio access session was brilliant - the studio is so well equipped and it's a really peaceful place to work. Thanks so much, I'll definitely be back!
Thanks again Kim.
ABOUT THE COURSE
Jewellery Studio Bench Access days are designed for capable jewellers to work independently and are not a teaching session. Supervised by either Emily Copp or Kim Elliott, who will always be available to help you find your way around the studio and, if necessary, to induct you into the safe use of equipment.
Jewellery Studio Bench Access provides access to jewellers and students wishing to utilise a range of apparatus including hand tools, Orca and Smiths little soldering torches, drill press, Foredom flex shaft, micro motors, rolling mills, polishers, ultrasonic, tumbler, hydraulic press, small kiln and a myriad of tools and paraphernalia. Just ask if we have it.
Participants will have their own bench in the classroom for the day and have access to the classroom, workshops, kitchenette and dining area. Participant numbers are generally small, so you have room to spread out and get into your making in our light-filled studio.
SquarePeg is a studio enterprise in a 200 square metre warehouse in Marrickville’s creative hub. With space for 14 jewellers and a well-equipped workshop, Bench Access at SquarePeg is an opportunity to interact with a mix of emerging and established makers in a supportive and creative environment.
