Jewellery Exhibition, Open Studio and Artist Talk

SquarePeg Studios jewellery workshop, studio and school open its doors with an Open Studio, Artist Talk and Exhibition. Come and explore behind the scenes of our creative space. Tour our workshops, classroom and studio spaces. Meet our resident jewellery artists who create wonderfully diverse works in a range of styles and materials and take the opportunity to buy handmade jewellery directly from them. Find out about our 20+ courses and workshops and be inspired to get making too.

SquarePeg will present the collaborative show and artist talk, ‘Text to Contexture — Story-telling Through Jewellery’ by long-time resident artist Fiona Meller and recent graduate resident Marcia Swaby. These two jewellery artists from different cultures recognise the similarities in how they have discovered their ancestral histories through objects left as clues. Their talk discusses their findings.

SquarePeg is also participating in the ADC Makers Market on Saturday 19 October.

Details: Open Studio / Exhibition: Saturday 12 October, 10am – 5pm; Artist talk: Saturday 12 October, 3 – 5pm
