Design and create your own unique Christmas decoration in this one day Pewter Cuttlefish Casting Workshop with Ella, Manchester Craft and Design Centres resident Pewtersmith.
During the day Ella will guide you through various age old metalwork techniques so you can create a mould using Cuttlefish, cast with molten Pewter then finish your design before taking it home to admire. You will not only leave with the finished item but a collection of new skills, handy hints and tips you can use if you want to continue making at home.
Ella will provide inspiration on the day to design your Christmas decoration or you can bring some along. A perfect opportunity to create a memorable decoration for yourself or a handmade gift.
Pewter is a lead free malleable metal which doesn’t tarnish and is perfect for starting a new hobby.
All materials included, tea & coffee provided.
