Pewter explores the decorative modelling of a thin pewter sheet. It is a simple craft using basic tools to create decorative effects. Pewter is all about creating an ornamental 3-dimensional design in a malleable metal sheet, giving volume and texture by raising, engraving and or embossing with the use of hand-held tools.
We have the basic tools in our shop and have workshops in this lovely craft every Wednesday. As far as I know, we are the only shop in Western Australia where the craft of pewter is taught.
We shall teach you all about the basic process of working with pewter and provide the tools that you will need. At the end of three hours you will be the proud owner of a lovely pewter object to frame or to stick on a box or any object of your choice.
The workshop includes the following:
- Help to select a project
- Low relief
- High relief
- Filling back cavities
- Background designs
- Antiquing pewter
Our pewter classes are held every Wednesday from 10am – 1pm. The cost of the classes is $25.00 for the first lesson plus materials and $10.00 thereafter plus materials. Please book in advance.
We sell the products that you will need for your projects in the shop.
Mosaic is a medium of wide expressive possibilities. It is a playful art form and will change your life.
Mosaic is made up of a selection of a collection of units – the mosaic tiles. It is cut, placed and stick down to form a pattern. After the drying process, the grouting enhances and bring together the pattern.
If you get bitten by the mosaic bug you will find yourself seeing possibilities for mosaics everywhere. You will catch yourself looking at paving stones, old walls, even the random shapes of pebbles
and fallen leaves.
Our mosaic classes are held every Wednesday from 10am – 1pm. The cost for the classes are $25.00 for the first lesson plus materials and $10.00 thereafter plus materials. Bookings essential.
Tiles and the cutting tools are available at the shop. We can also cut you a wooden blank to the size you prefer.
