I loved the chance to be creative under the expert tutelage of Danielle. It so satisfying when you design and create something so wonderful and special. I feel confident now to begin making some silver jewellery and am excited to keep attending classes at Square Peg. Onward to the next chapter.

The beginners 7 week course was so interesting, intensive and rewarding. I was a little worried the classes would be either super beginner or more advanced than it appeared but our awesome teacher was so patient and explained everything so well! It was really enlightening to learn more about the methods of jewellery making and she also gave us lots of options and tips for if we wanted to set up our own jewellery minishop at home! We learnt skills like cutting metals, soldering, How to create patterns on metals with different metals and so is much more! I thought we would only do one project the whole course but I walked away with 2 rings and a necklace that I made myself!!! Such an incredible experience and I will 100% be back to take part in the intermediate class in the new year! Thanks Danielle and SquarePeg!

I have just finished the 7 weeks beginners course and absolutely LOVED it! Learned a lot about the materials, concepts and how to. think about my designs. Not only that, we got to practice so much and learn new tools. 100% recommend, actually doing intermediate next year ;) Thanks so much Emily for being a wonderful teacher to our class, always so kind and patient (and incredibly knowledgable).
