Pewter Brooch Making Workshop
10am – 1pm / £49.10 / Booking via Eventbrite
Join Ella on a 3 hour pewter brooch making workshop.
During this workshop Ella will guide you through the process of adding texture and pattern to sheet pewter, a lead free metal. We will use textures and foraged dried foliage to print on the the pewter using a traditional metalwork tool called a rolling mill. Ella will have a large selection for you to choose from but please do feel free to bring along interesting textures to try – items less than 5mm thick such as lace, paper stencils or leaves work well.
We will then use hammers and piercing tools to shape your brooches (approx 3 made per workshop) before learning to solder on brooch backs and polishing so you can proudly wear them home. A fun workshop to create your own unique piece of jewellery.
Suitable for beginners or those with previous silver or jewellery experience.
