Description

CUTTLEFISH CASTING – MAKE A SPOON
Design and make your own pewter spoon, using cuttlefish to make a mould, you will learn the basic principles of working with this lovely metal as you create your own pewter spoon to take home and use.

Each student will begin the day making a simple test piece to practise carving into the cuttlefish and casting the pewter. They will choose a pewter bowl shape for their spoon and then design the handle around it. Using this as the template they will carve into the cuttlefish ready to cast the pewter into it. Once cast, the handle will be filed, cleaned up, soldered onto the bowl and polished ready to take home and use.
