    Bring in your solder free scrap sterling silver to make your ingot!
    Looking for a way to use up some of those pesky little scraps that aren't big enough to use for anything else? I will show you how to pour an ingot out of your scrap so that you can roll out your silver into a more useful form. A valuable skill to economise your maker toolbox.
    Please contact me directly so I know who all is coming, thank you.

    ** I will also be stewarding this evening so feel free to stick around for the Drop-in Session and make a day of it!**
