Make your own Pewter Pendant
Learn the history of Pewter Jewellery Casting in the Viking age in this practical workshop where you will make your own pendant under the careful instructions from Jennifer Bray of Brumvik Reenactment Group.
You'll be able to practice your pewter stamping, cast pewter under supervision using traditional soapstone moulds and decorate your casting.
Some wish to create faithful reproductions of historic finds housed now in museums all over the world, such as the one in the example photo, while some choose to learn the traditional technique yet create something new and unique, either way, it's a great experience to be had and you get to pick whether you chose to make a Thor's Hammer or something else. You can learn about the options in the introduction talk and see some examples too.
The session will last 1 hour and will start at 13:00 and finish at 14:00 Saturday 30th July 2022.
