Contemporary pewter offers a real alternative for making low cost jewellery that has all the appeal of your silver pieces. If your vision of pewter is dull old tankards, think again and take a fresh look at today's silver shine lead free pewter. This new non tarnish pewter is so versatile it can be cast, etched, stamped, formed and incorporated with other metals to create fabulous jewellery pieces. With a low melting point, we case the pewter using cuttle fish moulds, creating your own pendants and key tabs.
The tutor will introduce you to the tools and equipment to cast pewter at home easily. You will learn the process of casting pewter at home, then make a mould from cuttle fish before casting your own piece.
All materials are provided within the course fee.
