Description

There are 5 available options for a workshop.

1 – One day pewter casting workshop were you will make a pewter tealight, going through various processes such as: Casting, mouldmaking, soldering, cutting out and polishing.  There will only be two people on the course so a lot can be achieved in a day and you will get to go home with a tealight holder ready to display and use with pride! Materials included. Location: Fleurs Studio in Angmering.

2 – This one-day workshop is designed to give a complete beginner or an experienced metal worker the opportunity to learn basic techniques for working with pewter.  Each student will begin the day making a simple test piece to practise carving into the cuttlefish and casting the pewter. They will choose a pewter bowl shape for their spoon and then design their spoon handle around it. Using this as the template they will carve into the cuttlefish ready to cast the pewter into it. Once cast, the handle will be filed and cleaned up ready to solder on the bowl. There will also be the option to do a quite simple stone setting in the end of the spoon handle using a cabochon stone, shell, pebble, or piece of glass. If you have one you would like to use, please do bring it with you (preferably not bigger than 2cm). Location: The Victoria Institute Arundel, West Sussex. Materials included.

3 – 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.  Location: The Victoria Institute Arundel, West Sussex. Materials included.

4 – A 1 to 1 workshop gives the option to learn more about specific areas relevant to the persons own work or a project.  We will discuss prior to doing the day what you would like to achieve so I can make a plan and have everything ready to go straight into the project – One day 1 to 1 it will be £280 Upto 500gms Pewter included.  Location: Fleurs Studio in Angmering West Sussex.

5 – A 2 day workshop, as in the one day it is a specific project planning before so as much as possible can be achieved.  If booking 2 days they do not need to be booked in a block, sometimes after doing a day time is needed to think how to proceed and a few days or even weeks in-between can help, so we can rebook the second day when it is convenient.  2 day workshop is £550. Upto 500gms Pewter included.  Location: Fleurs Studio in Angmering West Sussex.

Gift Vouchers are non refundable.
