Join Ella on a 3 hour pewter brooch making workshop.

During this workshop Ella will guide you through the process of adding texture and pattern to sheet pewter, a lead free metal. We will use textures and foraged dried foliage to print on the the pewter using a traditional metalwork tool called a rolling mill. Ella will have a large selection for you to choose from but please do feel free to bring along interesting textures to try - items less than 5mm thick such as lace, paper stencils or leaves work well.

We will then use hammers and piercing tools to shape your brooches (approx 3 made per workshop) before learning to solder on brooch backs and polishing so you can proudly wear them home. A fun workshop to create your own unique piece of jewellery.

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

FAQs

What should I bring to the event?

All materials are provided including tea, coffee and biscuits as well as aprons and design inspiration however if you have any doodles or pictures of ideas you'd like to make please do bring them along.

Our Victorian building can get a little chilly due to the glass roof so we'd recommend you bring an extra jumper. We will be using tools and molten metal so closed toed shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty, though aprons are provided, are suggested.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Drop Ella a line at ella@ellamcintosh.co.uk and she'll get back to you.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope. Just the name the booking was made with and we'll tick you off our list.
