Pewtersmith

Have a go at this age old technique of Pewtersmithing and

create your own unique designs in a cuttlefish cast.

Ella is an award winning Pewtersmith & will guide you through the process of

carving your ideas into the cuttlefish before pouring molten pewter into the

mould and finishing your design using metalwork tools.

This time served technique using this unusual material produces fantastic tactile

results and is a great way to experience pewter in both a molten and solid form.

Please feel free to bring along any inspiration or designs you may have or Ella

will have lots to work from on the day.

PewtersmithingSuitable for beginners as well as attendees with previous silver or

jewellery making experience
