I abolutely love it here. Learning jewellery making and design was something I always wanted to do but couldnt commit to a 3 year $20K course when I didnt know if it was something I'd want to do as a career. I just love it as a hobby. These courses are a fantastic and affordable way of learning jewellery making that I can then take home and play more with.

We had an incredible group, I was nervous about going in to something I’d never done before alone, but everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Our teacher was fantastic, so much patience and knowledge. I’ve alredat signed up the the intermediate course, I’m hooked!

I attended a 4 day summer school jewellery making course for beginners. Itwas extremely comprehensive and Emily Copp, our workshop leader, was fantastic. She managed brilliantly our group of 10, delivering skills, knowledge and safety elements for each of the processes. She even supplied ice blocks and lavender spray which kept us cool and rejuvenated. I adore the pieces I created and feel inspired to continue developing my skill set further. Thank you Square Peg Studios for a great contemporary introduction to this ancient art form.
