Saturday, 29th September, 2018, 10.30am to 4.30pm

Carmarthen Learning Centre, Furnace Rd, SA31 1EU

Cost: £45

An ancient technique, used by the Romans – it is very low tech and wonderful items of jewellery with a professional finish can be produced in a few hours. Students make moulds in plaster or cuttlefish to their own designs, then lead free pewter is poured into the moulds using hand gravity casting.  The moulds can be reused to make pendants, earrings, brooches, keyrings and fridges magnets.
