Take part in a pewter casting workshop with jewellery artist Birgit Thalau.

Thalau takes the aluminium sculptures of artist duo Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil as a starting point and introduces you to the unusual technique of casting in sand. This technique has been used for centuries in industrial settings but also in the craft sector, such as silversmithing and goldsmithing.

Make a personal jewellery item by using a sand mould into which molten pewter is poured. Observe the metal changing from a liquid to a solid state. The casting process is an excellent method to use when you want to produce several identical metal pieces.
