WORKSHOP : January 11, 2020.
Pewter Spoon Making Workshop
10am – 3pm / £92.22 / Tickets via Eventbrite
A full day of spoon making with Ella.
You’ll cover a whole variety of traditional pewtersmithing skills to create your own unique spoon design. Ella will guide you through each process with demonstrations as you learn how to hammer a flat sheet of metal into a spoon bowl. You will then use molten pewter to cast ingots for the handles before personalising your spoon using a variety of letter stamping, shaping and hammering before polishing for you to take home. A handmade spoon for lots of yummy treats!
Suitable for beginners or those with previous silver or jewellery experience.
What should I bring to the event?
All materials are provided including tea, coffee and biscuits as well as aprons and design inspiration however if you have any doodles or pictures of ideas you’d like to make please do bring them along. Lunch can be purchased from our on-site cafe, feel free to explore the local Northern Quarter area or bring a packed lunch.
Our Victorian building can get a little chilly due to the glass roof so we’d recommend you bring an extra jumper. We will be using tools and molten metal so closed toed shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty are suggested.
