FRENEMIES: JOINING PEWTER, SILVER, AND OTHER METALS / July 11 & 18 Zoom workshop via Pocosin Arts
Not everything you’ve heard about pewter was wrong, but a lot might be. This workshop will teach students to weld and solder pewter to itself and other metals. Special emphasis will be placed on the dramatic range of effects that can be created when pewter and sterling silver are fused and soldered. Along the way, we will also investigate how pewter’s low melting point can be used to capture alternative materials.
