Workshop Description

Because of its low melting point, pewter is an alloy that can be cast directly into silicone rubber molds. This allows for making complex and detailed cast objects quickly and with ease. In this workshop students will learn to make one-piece and multi-part molds using models they sculpt out of clay, wax, or wood. The class will cover various cutting, filing, soldering, and fusing techniques, along with patination and finishing. Because modern pewter is lead-free, the objects participants create can be functional and food safe. Possibilities can include utensils, cups, belt buckles, small sculptures, and more. Open to all skill levels.
