Kim St. Jean | Pewter Casting | Friday, February 7th, 2020 | 6PM until 9PM

$85.00

Pewter is such an under-appreciated metal, its super easy to work with, inexpensive, doesn’t tarnish and no one is allergic to it.  

In this class you will learn how to cast pewter in casting sand, into impressions made by various found objects, to create charms/pendants to use in bracelets or necklaces. 

Come join me and learn just how versatile this metal actually is. 

Out of stock

I'm interested in this class. Please add me to the waiting list.
