Cuttlefish casting in pewter

Collection of Pewter jewellery and keyring

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.

Maximum of 4 participants. You will be required to wear a mask for the workshop due to the COVID-19 rules. Tea break can happen outside if it is dry to have a breather from the masks.

Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty/dirty and shoes that cover your toes!

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

I had a wonderful time with Katy. She made me feel really welcome and I learnt a lot. I also came away with a lovely and I think very wearable piece of jewellery. Thank you so much for today Katy, I am still smiling.

Response from Katy Luxton Jewellery:

Thank you Amanda, for a lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed it.

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.

Response from Katy Luxton Jewellery:

Thank you Grace, I am so glad you enjoyed it!
See you again soon
