Pewter Brooch Making

**Second date added due to popular demand**
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. You will use textures and foraged dried foliage to print on the the pewter using a traditional metalwork tool called a rolling mill.
You 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.
