A day of textures and patterns using traditional rolling mills on sheet pewter; create your own unique pewter Bangles, Brooches & more to your own unique designs, with Ella McIntosh.
Under Ella's expert guidance, design and create a beautifully textured bangle out of sheet pewter. During the first part of your day you will learn how to apply textures and patterns to the sheet metal using traditional machinery called 'rolling mills' , followed by using various techniques to create your jewellery.
You might wish to bring along some of your own patterns / textures to work with such as lace, stencils or foliage, particularly if they hold a special meaning to you.
This class covers a broad range of skills and is suitable for beginners as well as attendees with previous silver or jewellery making experience. There should also be time to make other items such as brooches, pendants or ear-rings on the day.

About the Artist: Ella is an award winning Pewter smith. She is a traditionally trained Silversmith, studying at Buckinghamshire University, and describes being introduced to Pewter during her second year, as love at first hammer. She works out of her studio at the Manchester Craft and Design Centre. Using techniques which have been passed down through generations of makers, Ella loves the sense of history, of connection with previous makers of years ago. This mix of ‘old’ combined with stripped back, embellishment-free contemporary design is what excites her.
