Pewter Spoon Making

A full day of spoon making with resident Pewtersmith, Ella .
The day will cover a whole variety of traditional pewtersmithing skills so you can 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.
Suitable for beginners or those with previous silver or jewellery experience.
