Pewter Drop Casting Workshop
Sunday, 12/9/2012
7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
TechShop San Jose

Since the 11th century, pewter has been cast into objects of utility and beauty. An alloy of tin and copper, pewter is relatively malleable, and its soft sheen provides an elegant contrast to the steel which surrounds us today.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn to make a mold and cast a small part using molten pewter. You will first create a plaster mold blank that can be carved using hand tools or any other carving instrument. Next, you will hand carve a simple part or design and will learn various other techniques such as using modeling clay or copying an existing piece. Finally, you will melt the pewter and make your casting to create a pendant, key fob, piece of jewelry, or small part.

Workshop length: 2 hours. Cost: $50 including materials fee.

Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your seat today!
