The beginners jewellery making course was great. We learnt all the basics, including annealing, soldering, saw piecing, forming and hammering metal. We were then given the freedom to apply all of these skills in our own mini projects. Erin was a great teacher and very knowledgable. Would highly recommend!

So glad I found Square peg. The beginners class was amazing and Erin is a great teacher. It has inspired me to continue further classes and seriously look at turning a hobby into something more serious.

This is such a fantastic course run by true professionals and brilliant artists! I learnt so much in 7 weeks and am thrilled with my outcome of a pair of earrings and a ring. I highly recommend this course and can't wait to do the next one.
