Cuttlefish casting with Katy Luxton

Cuttlefish casting with Katy Luxton

Sat 16 July, 2022

Learn the ancient technique of cuttlefish casting and create a pendant or keyring.

You can bring along a special object, such as such as a favourite shell, or carve your own design into the soft inner surface of the cuttlefish. You will be using pewter, which has a low melting temperature, to create a cast of your piece. The object you make can be kept as a small sculptural object or turned into a pendant or keyring.

On the Day

All tools and materials will be provided. Please bring an apron and wear old clothes.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. Lunch is not included in the ticket fee so please bring a packed lunch.

On arrival please make your way to the side gate of the Riverside Mill, through the courtyard and up the stone stairs on the side of the building. Please let us know if you require the lift.

Please be aware that you cannot use the Co-op car park for all day parking. The Methodist Church car park and Station Road car park usually have plenty of spaces
