Pewter brooch making.

  • Manchester Craft and Design Centre 17 Oak Street M4 5JD (map)

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.

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.
