This fantastic kit is the perfect way to experience the joy of learning to cast pewter to fit around your life and in your own timescale. The kit provided ensures you not only have everything you need to complete the course but also all the tools so that you can carry on creating amazing pewter pieces afterwards. This exciting process involves making and using moulds, melting and pouring the pewter, finishing and polishing your design, and turning it into jewellery. By the end of the workshop you will have completed 4-6 pieces in a variety of techniques, finishes and styles. This series of exercises is the equivalent of a full day course (including making time) and will enable you to feel confident enough to keep making it on your own afterwards. If you need any help at any point I can be available on email and WhatsApp so you're never on your own! And even if you have any questions or need help after the sessions you can always get in contact. I love to help and hear how you got on. Please allow 7 - 10 days for delivery of your kit.
What's included in the price?
All your materials and tools are included as well as all the video tutorials that you will need. Help is also available by WhatApp and email.
What you will need
A clean, safe place to work when using the provided blow torch on a heat mat. A drill (a hand drill is fine if you do not have a power tool), a scrap piece of wood to drill onto, a craft knife and mat or scissors, hammer and centre punch and a pair of pliers if you have them (don't worry if not). A WiFi connection and access to a computer large enough to view the tutorials clearly and with the ability to play sound.
6 hours (flexible times to suit)
Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
