We are holding a tin dish making workshop at our atelier. You will use various hammers and engraving tools to create patterns on a tin plate with a diameter of about 11 cm and process it into a small dish or container. The finished dishes can be used for various purposes such as individual dishes, tea trays, small trays, and sake cups. Since it is a very soft metal, you can easily experience metalworking. Please feel free to contact us.
About tin -
Tin, known as the third most expensive metal after gold and silver, is difficult to oxidize and has antibacterial properties that keep the surface hygienic. It is a relatively soft metal among metals and has the characteristic of maintaining a beautiful luster for a long time with little color change.
Its history is estimated to date back to around 1500 BC in ancient Egypt, where tin tools were used. In Japan, tin treasures are stored in the Shosoin repository.
In addition, it has been used for sake cups and tea utensils because it has been said since ancient times that “water in a tin container does not rot” and “the taste of sake becomes delicious by removing impurities.”"
