Try your hand at pewtersmithing with THIS IS PEWTER’s Ella McIntosh

Lead-free Pewter is a versatile and ‘eco-friendly’ metal which looks like silver but is very low maintenance, can be used with food, and looks super stylish around your home.

Ella McIntosh, award-winning designer and Manchester Craft & Design Centre’s resident pewtersmith invites you to join her for a day of creativity. Pewter is malleable metal which doesn’t tarnish and is perfect for starting a new hobby or exploring a different material.
