Description

Join Ella for a fun and experimental day full of spoon making at Mancheter Craft and Design Centre.

A workshop inspired by Ellas love of making spoons and her collection of foraged, vintage and found objects. We will be combining traditional pewtersmithing skills with surprising spoon handles to create contemporary objects for use or decoration.

We will start the day learning how to hammer flat sheets of pewter into 3D spoon bowls and designing our spoons before experimenting with hammer marks, riveting, wire wrapping, polishing and drilling to create decorative effects. After lunch we will combine all of these techniques with handles such as beautiful sticks, vintage rulers, rusty found objects to create unique spoons. Ella will have a large collection to forage through but pease do feel free to bring any along - the more unexpected the better!

Suitable for beginners or those with previous silver or jewellery experience.
