During this 1 day workshop with pewtersmith Ella McIntosh, you will be creating a statement necklace or bracelet using the traditional and unusual metalwork technique of cuttlefish casting.

You will be guided by Ella in the use of this technique to create a chunky claw stone setting to create a focus point in your jewellery before finishing your work with traditional jewellery tools. Please feel free to bring along your own stones/gems or if you want to be experimental, any broken pottery pieces, found objects or buttons you may like to try setting.

Please note that there is a £15 materials charge for this workshop payable on the day.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

All materials will be provided.

The workshop can be messy so make sure you wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and ideally please wear clothing items that cover arms and legs and avoid wearing open toe shoes or sandals.
