Ella McIntosh

← Back to Tutors

Ella is a traditionally trained Silversmith, studying at Buckinghamshire University, and describes being introduced to Pewter during her second year, as love at first hammer. The love affair has continued for the past 5 years as she now enjoys hammering, soldering and bashing in her studio at Manchester Craft and Design Centre. Using techniques which have been passed down through generations of makers, Ella loves the sense of history, of connection with previous makers of years ago. This mix of ‘old’ combined with stripped back, embellishment-free contemporary design is what excites her.
