Cast a Ring or 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 of a ring or 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.

Maximum of 8 Students
