Pewter Casting Taster Workshop

Using traditional pewter cuttlefish casting techniques you will carve your design into a cuttlefish bone and use this as the mould to pour molten pewter into, at the end of each taster session you will have 2 – 3 cast pewter pieces.   No experience is needed as I will guide you through the process step by step and the taster workshops are a fun way to try working with pewter.

Make Your Own Pewter Pendant or Keyring – Using your carved cuttlefish mould you will use this to pour the pewter into and cast a pendant or keyring. This will then be cleaned up ready to use / wear.

Make Your Own Pewter Christmas Decoration – Using your Christmas decoration design that has been carved into the cuttlefish bone as the mould you will pour the molten pewter into, then it will be cleaned, polished and hung on a ribbon ready to hang on your tree.

“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!
