Experience traditional cuttlefish casting to create your own designs.
Discover the magic of pewter cuttlefish casting - an age old jewellery making technique.
Through the workshop Ella will guide you through the process of carving your design from the unusual natural material of cuttlefish before we pour the molten metal to reveal your design.
We will then finish your cast using traditional jewellery tools and techniques before polishing so you can proudly take your final piece home. A fascinating technique with beautiful results.
Suitable for beginners or those with previous silver or jewellery experience.
