Description

Master the flame and finesse your skills this June at SquarePeg Studios. Are you keen to improve your soldering skills and learn new techniques? Our three day Winter Jewellery Making Intensive is a concentrated and inspiring learning environment with our most experienced and fabulous tutor Diane Appleby.

This spring Diane will guide you in applying and developing your existing jewellery making skills and introduce you to new techniques in the creation of a unique vessel which can be worn or displayed as an object - maybe both!

You will love learning new techniques and mastering the torch in our beautiful warehouse workshop.

SquarePeg Studios will be the  place to be this June long weekend - so fire up your jewellery making skills, improve your soldering techniques and learn lots of useful tips and tricks as you develop control and confidence under the expert tuition of Diane Appleby.

MEET YOUR TUTOR

Diane Appleby completed her Master of Art in Gold and Silversmithing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2003. She has taught in the Jewellery and Object Design Department, Sydney Institute of Technology, Design Centre Enmore, and at the College of Fine Art, University of NSW. Diane’s catalogue of work encompasses collections for exhibition and collaborations with clients on individual pieces. “My jewellery is designed to not only catch the eye, but to also feel delightful to wear. I like to play with colour, form and texture. I choose materials for their unique character, such as stones for their luminosity, metals to encapsulate strength, and silks for their sheen and rippling texture. I enjoy creating pieces with a precious presence. “At the heart of every design is an inspiration, whether I am creating a collection for an exhibition or working with a client to create a uniquely personal piece. I find the satisfaction of bringing a concept to life from a few simple sketches to a finished form extremely exciting.”

This was a fantastic weekend. We worked hard for three days to achieve some amazing results.. Diane is one of the best. She has some much knowledge and is able to guide everyone so efficiently. I love all the small tips that she gives regarding soldering, saw piercing, holding metal for emerying and the list goes on. She encourages student's original design ideas and has many examples of her own. Thank you again for such an interesting and exciting weekend.
