Spend an evening making small precious objects from pewter. Using a technique that dates back to the Vikings, you will carve into a cuttlefish shell, and pour molten metal into your very own unique mould. You will be shown how to melt the metal Pewter – a malleable metal alloy that has a low melting point. There will be the opportunity to cast two small objects throughout the evening. The course includes access to the metal workshop for finishing techniques.

You can bring along ideas or drawings to carve. Learn this simple metalworking process and create a pendant or a keepsake to take home. Perfect for beginners or those with some experience of metalwork.

6 places available per class.

Our tutor Lauren Wilson is an experienced sculptor and metal fabricator and is a resident member at Blackhorse Workshop.
