This is a form of Repoussť and involves impressing or engraving designs, with tools designed for the purpose,
onto a thin sheet of pewter.

Pewter Repoussť is one of the most popular crafts and is versatile, easy to learn and most importantly a very enjoyable and rewarding hobby.
All pewter material and tools are available from TAS Hobbies.

Regular Workshops are held in order to give those interested in this art the chance to work hands-on and be instructed by experts in the field. Contact us to make arrangements to a workshop.

The images below are but a few samples of what can be achieved working with pewter. Some tools of the trade are depicted after the images below.
