Lisa Cain on BBC4

March 27, 2018

Lisa Cain was selected to appear in the mini-series, Make! Craft Britain on BBC4.

This high quality programme consisted of three 1-hour episodes, each showcasing two different crafts taught by the top experts in their field. The crafts covered were Rug making, Letterpress printing, Cross Stitch, Silver Clay, Mosaic and knitting.

Lisa featured in the second episode.

Filming took place in Newcastle over two days where six novices learned about silver metal clay under the expert tuition of Lisa Cain.

After an introductory project, the students were allowed to choose what they wanted to make and came up with some great designs.

Everyone produced excellent pieces which they were delighted with.

Lisa hired as consultant for epic project

May 08, 2016

Rachael Osborne is a silversmith and artist living in Cornwall.

She takes her inspiration from the sea and wanted to capture the swirling motion of the water in metal.

The pursuit of this desire led her to develop a brand new technique in pewter.

She made huge bowls using this technique and then won the prestigious Goldsmiths bullion award to recreate her bowls in sterling silver.

Rachael hired Lisa Cain as consultant to advise her on making the bowl using silver metal clay.

They worked together on this difficult and exciting project to create the largest vessel ever made in silver clay.
