About the Course

Come and try the ancient technique of cuttlefish casting, using the dried bone of a cuttlefish. Bring along a special beach find like a favourite shell or carve a shape into the soft inner surface. We will be using pewter which has a low melting temperature, to create a cast of your piece. The object you make can be kept as a small sculptural object or turned into a pendant or keyring. Will you keep it or give it as a gift? This class is suitable for beginners as well as those with some previously tried silver or jewellery making. I will be running this course and a silver course throughout the year and am happy to run private workshops for groups throughout the year.

Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty/dirty and shoes that cover your toes!
Included will be delicious cake served with Tea or Coffee at the Harbour Bar.
