With Ella McIntosh of www.EllaMcIntosh.co.uk
Create a pewter trinket box of your own design using traditional metalwork and pewtersmithing techniques such as adding pattern/texture to pewter with a rolling mill, constructing your box using sheet metalwork skills and sand casting found items such as shells, seed heads and motifs to create the lid and box decoration.
Ella, whose pewtersmithing practice has been established for 7 years, is a contemporary maker who uses traditional metalwork skills to create table and home wares. Her work is recognised by the Worshipful Company of Pewterers having won their Pewter Live award twice and she was delighted to receive a 2018 Creative and Cultural Skills award for her workshop programme.
Having studied Silversmithing Ella specialised in pewter to celebrate her love for the metal and its unique characteristics. This malleable metal has been used to create tableware for generations and modern makers such as Ella keep the flag flying for pewter and heritage pewtersmithing skills.
This course is suitable for beginners as well as those who may have experienced silver or other metals previously.
