Fantastic weekend workshop taught by Mel Ihnen. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn flush setting. Every aspect was covered along with tool making and practical advice that came from years of experience. I loved it.

Hi Robin, thank you for your kind words. We also think Mel is a wonderful tutor and jeweller. Glad to hear the tool-making was a hit. See you soon, we hope! 🔨💎Team SquarePeg

Fun weekend! Mel was patient, gave clear explanations, and was great with troubleshooting. There was ample time to practice and no pressure to get something perfect by the end of the weekend. Loved that we got to take the burs home.

Another fantastic course at Square Peg - my third this year. Gypsy setting is so precise and challenging to learn, but Mel's calm and attentive teaching style coupled with numerous demonstrations and clear instruction allowed me to understand the steps and feel confident I can now do this in my home workshop. I definitely plan to keep coming back for more courses. I've been to several other studios in Sydney to develop my practice, but Square Peg is outstanding. I've learned so many new skills and know that if I ever need to follow up with a question or advice, it will be available to me. Thanks again Mel!
