GIVE IT A BASH! Pewter workshop with Ella McIntosh

Manchester Craft & Design Centre
£55 per person
Have you always fancied a bash at metalwork? Want to learn a new skill? Experience something new? Is your creative side itching to get out? This is your chance…
In this one-day workshop, Ella McIntosh will guide you through designing and making your own unique Pewter Mini Pot which can be used as a planter, vase for your spring buds, pen holder or even a gift. You will have the unique experience of learning a whole range of traditional metalwork skills and techniques first-hand from Ella, including applying pattern to the metal with a rolling mill, soldering Pewter, cutting, and filing amongst others.
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. Not only will you take away a Pewter Mini Pot but a variety of metalwork skills and knowledge which you can continue to use – perfect for any budding creative beginners as well as more advanced makers who fancy trying a new media.
All tools and materials are provided.
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!
