About the Course
Under Ella's expert guidance design and create your own pewter vessel - an exciting new course for 2018
The first part of the day you will learn how to apply textures and patterns to sheet pewter metal using traditional machinery called 'rolling mills'. This will be followed by mastering soldering
techniques to complete the building of your pot. You might wish to bring along some of your own patterns / textures to work with such as lace, stencils or foliage.
This class covers a broad range of skills and is suitable for beginners as well as attendees with previous silver or jewellery making experience.
There will be an extra materials charge of £15 - 20 payable directly to the tutor on the day for the pewter materials.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.
We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 from our friendly family run Cycle Cafe Tea Garden on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.
