This is your chance to play with molten pewter! In this workshop we will be carving a mold out of a cuttlefish bone and then pouring molten pewter into the mold to create our own jewelry pieces. This is a simple, traditional introduction to the world of metal casting. The cuttlefish bone is easily carved using dental tools. Here is a link from make magazine that describes the process in more detail: https://makezine.com/2012/03/16/how-to-cuttlebone-casting/

We are using pewter because it is easy to melt with a torch and it is an inexpensive, non-toxic metal that is easy to work with. You can use this same technique to cast silver, gold and platinum, but that is not part of this workshop (too much $$$)!
