Year 7 Pewter Keyrings

Year 7s have been working on a project making pewter keyrings. As part of the design process, they researched ancient cultures like the Egyptians, Incas, Greeks and Anglo Saxons and used the research as inspiration for their designs.

Initial designs were drawn, then they made prototypes of their keyrings as part of testing how well their initial design works, before finalising their final design ideas.

An important part of the project was learning about different materials, equipment and techniques like pewter casting.

The making part of the project included making the mould and laying the patterns in the mould before the pewter was poured into the mould.

Here are some examples of the keyrings that were made:
