Pewter casting with Christine Atkins!

What a treat this meet the down to earth and creatively well endowed Christine Atkin
and learn the very cool process of pewter casting! 

we started by carving our designs into some cuttle fish!

Secure the cuttle fish to a tile, melt the pewter and pour it in....

...and out it comes!

Saw, file and sand then, Wohola! 

Christine is an extremely giving and open tutor with a wealth of knowledge 
and she makes the most exquisite sculpture and jewellery pieces to boot....check out her 
website to see her work and workshop schedule! Chick here to see her site!
