The beginner class exceeded my expectations, Erin is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and willing to help with design and techniques. Whether you think you're creative or not (me!) enrol and give it a go, you'll be amazed what you can create.

I had a fantastic introduction to jewellery making at Squarepeg. It was recommended to me like a reflex action by a friend. Our tutor Erin worked nonstop throughout the course to be on hand to coach us in the skills we needed to realise our planned designs. We could also elaborate in different directions as our competency improved. The studio is well resourced with plenty of tools and labour saving equipment. We were given excellent starter packs of copper and argentium by A&E Metal to begin day one (who also have excellent customer service and are highly recommended).
