Mel is very welcoming and personable. She is clearly very creative with a wide range of knowledge across many medias, and open to sharing her knowledge when asked. Made to feel at home (provided some nuts and hot drinks). We were given lots of guidance and step by step support alongside a wide range of examples/resources. A very simple method to pick up within minutes of Mel's explanation and trial/test piece; and then the rest of the session to be creative and make it your own.
You take a wooden box, colour the clasp and hinges, and remove the corners in prep and paint it whatever colour you like. Then you draw out your design and begin embossing on the pewter sheet. You also use a pattern for the surround on a separate piece of pewter. Then we treated/coloured the pewter and then cleaned it to your required shine. Finally sticking the pewter bits to the box.
We also got a tour of the building while we were waiting for the pewter to be treated, which was lovely to see all the creativity. A wonderful day. Would recommend.
