Cuttlefish Casting Workshop with Ella McIntosh
Join Ella on her Cuttlefish Casting workshop to make your own hanging decoration or bracelet/pendant charm. Casting molten Pewter into Cuttlefish bone is wonderful process which allows you to scratch, draw or press into the medium resulting in a huge scope for your own unique design. Ella will guide you through the whole process, from design through to the finishing of your castings, so you can take home a finished item as well as a set of new skills and lots of handy tips for all you budding Pewterers.
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 look super stylish around your home. Ella is an award-winning designer and is based here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre. She is passionate about pewter, and can’t wait for you to fall in love with it too!
