I absolutely loved this class. I had absolutely no experience with jewellery making or metal work of any kind and I've learnt more than I ever imagined. I also really enjoyed the classes; I felt no pressure and yet I was challenged learning new skills every class. I've produced two rings which I love and I can't wait to get back to Squarepegs. I highly recommend Jo as a teacher; she is incredibly knowledgeable, clever, creative, patient and creates a fun learning environment where everyone is given the time they need and learns at their own pace.

What a wonderful experience! Fantastic teacher, supportive environment. Atelier course suits me well because I am able to develop my own design and learn various techniques. Thank you Jo and all Squarepeggers!

I love the Atelier and wish I could go every day of the week. Fantastic teacher and great facilities. The range of projects people are working on is a real benefit for learning, and the fact that you can go at your own pace as well as push your boundaries in design and technical skills is a huge bonus. Thank you to the team!!
