Pewter (Metal Embossing) Christmas Workshop - Sydney Course

Learn the ancient art of Pewter (otherwise known as Metal Embossing). Using a malleable sheet of lead free pewter, you will learn the skills needed to create magnificent artworks that will be nothing like you have ever seen before. With the use of hand held tools, you will raise and engrave different parts of the design to create texture and depth. This is then blackened and polished to achieve an antique, aged look with dramatic shadows.

Come join the Christmas Pewter Workshop where you will learn and make a spectacular and unique piece. The skills learnt are great for you to make a unique and personalised gift for those ‘impossible to buy for’ family or friends. You could also create a beautiful keepsake (eg tree decoration, ornament or box) that can be enjoyed year after year.

The possibilities are endless and once you have learnt the basics, you will find many more creative ideas to explore.
