Design and Make a Pendant in Pewter – 1 day pewter workshop.
This workshop goes through some of the basic principles of casting in pewter, initially carving a wax pattern for a pendant and then using this to make a two-part rubber mould.
You will then pour pewter into your mould and cast a pewter piece, which will be cleaned up and polished ready to wear.
It is not necessary to have any experience either working with metal or carving the wax as Fleur will guide you through the whole process step by step. This is a great opportunity to experience working with pewter and creating your own unique piece.
For groups of 2- 4 people I can book a date that will suit you, this can be a great way for you and your friends to learn a new skill and have some fun at the same time. I am happy to run these workshops week days or weekends.
What is included: All materials needed throughout the course will be included and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.
Time 10am – 4.30pm
Clothing: As students will be working with molten metal for safety reasons I do ask that everyone wears a long sleeve top and not wear open shoes. It can also get a bit dusty so students may want to bring an apron or wear old clothes.
Gift vouchers are also available if you are looking to buy a workshop day as a gift.
“Thank you so much for a fabulous day yesterday. It was brilliant to do something so different and to transform a collection of materials into an object that I’m actually quite proud of and was able to take home and use. I sent this photo to family and friends and they very impressed!
