About Sandy Griffiths

Multicrafter Sandy Griffiths has demonstrated and taught several crafts for many years. Private tuition in fine art, informal art workshops and courses in fabric painting soon had her confident enough to start running her own fabric painting classes. Always looking for something new to try, she started working with pewter many years ago, taking classes with one of the doyennes of pewter work, who then stopped teaching for personal reasons. At that stage there were no other pewter teachers in Cape Town nor was there much in the way of the written word. So Sandy spent many hours experimenting with and teaching herself this craft before starting to teach others. Sandy has a studio in Devils Peak in Cape Town where she teaches adults and runs a children's craft class. She is married, and has a daughter who inspires much of her own craft. Sandy has also produced an excellent DVD covering all the basic techniques and is the author of Easy pewter projects and Pewter it, both top sellers locally and internationally.
