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 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.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Really enjoyable morning. Katy explains things so well, we all had a good result to take home. Could have done a whole day as you learn so much with the first casting it would have been good to have had another go.
Venue is lovely if a little bit out the way and the cake is just scrumptious.
I look forward to a return visit to do some silversmithing.
Thank you Katy.
