ASL Pewter Setup "Day of Edutainment"

PRESS RELEASE

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO – Saturday, July 18th, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri and ASL Pewter invite you to attend a pewter demonstration.  This is a free demonstration open to all ages led by the owners of ASL Pewter, Tom and Patricia Hooper, of Ste. Genevieve. 

During this “Day of Edutainment” (education and entertainment), the Hoopers will walk guests through the process of creating beautiful pewter goods from molds old and new.  This demonstration will include all the stages of making pewter pieces, sans the molten hot metal.  Guests will also be able to see the pewter molds (handmade and vintage), engage Patricia and Tom in a Q & A, and be able to take part in a pewter history lesson from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.  In addition, pewter items will also be on sale. 

Tom and Patricia Hooper established ASL Foundry in 1995 in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.  The business has expanded over time making pewter tableware, household, personal items, and original designs. They make their own molds as well as use historic molds to create these old of-a-kind pieces.  By using traditional processes they provide functional yet decorative pewterware.  More information about ASL Pewter can be found at: http://www.aslpewter.com

 Tom Hooper has pieces on display during the month of July at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri with the Ste. Genevieve Art Guild show.

Join Tom and Patricia Hooper of ASL Pewter Saturday, July 18th, at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri, located at 32 North Main Street in Cape Girardeau, Mo.  The gallery is also open Tuesday – Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
