Design an embellished keepsake box

Customise your own keepsake box you can cherish forever in this pewter workshop. Pewter is a radiant, silvery metal that's easy to engrave or emboss with basic hand-held tools. That's exactly what you'll be doing here!

Your host is Mel, a pewter and mixed-media artist who will bring you right up to speed. No artistic ability is required as stencils and designs will be available in this beginner-friendly workshop.

Here's what to expect:

  • Design a beautiful keepsake box and embellish it in pewter
  • You will be guided through the creative process, from the piece of sheet pewter to your final polished work
  • Paint your box and line it with fabric - add a jewelled clasp to finish!
  • Tea and coffee provided
  • All materials are included

This workshop is for ages 16+

Age restrictions: 16+
