Event Description

Pewter has traditionally been used for utilitarian household items, jewelry and small sculptural castings.  Pewtersmithing follows this tradition by teaching the basic forming and joining processes associated with this versatile white metal.  Students learn welding, soldering, casting and surface adornment by creating a series of hollow forms reflecting their own personal design aesthetic.  Some possibilities include various cups, vases, teapots, boxes, salt/pepper shakers and eating utensils. Adult Continuing Education course (non-credit).
