The beautiful seaside town of Mahone Bay is buzzing with the excitement of the holiday season. Join the Amos Pewter elves for a behind-the-scenes look at the workshop and take part in the finishing of your own personalized keepsake. Then head just down the road and around the corner to Rebecca’s Restaurant to fuel your festive spirit with a delicious winter lunch.

Highlights

Join artisans in the Amos workshop to learn about the time-honoured practice of hand-crafting pewter pieces. Listen to their description of the creative process from original hand-drawn design to finished product. Learn about the different processes used, from ladling hot pewter into spinning moulds to spinning pewter discs on a lathe.

Watch as hot, free-flowing molten pewter is transformed into a Sand Dollar Shell. Then put on your elf hat and take part in the finishing process, carefully sanding, inscribing and adding a hanger, readying your personalized beach treasure to be hung as a memory of your visit to Amos.

Enjoy exploring the variety of products in the Amos shop with a newfound appreciation of the process it took to create them. Imagine how the touch of pewter could add sparkle to your tree with whimsical reindeer, carols of old and seaside treasures.

After leaving Amos, wind your way around picturesque Mahone Bay, past the iconic three churches where the friendly faces at Rebecca’s Restaurant are waiting to welcome you. Pull up a chair in the cozy dining room and warm yourself with a seasonal lunch followed by gingerbread cake drizzled with rum sauce. Finish with a toast to the season as you enjoy a cup of Rebecca’s Spiked Hot Apple Cider (made with Nova Scotia apples and JD Shore Black Rum) or a glass of Holiday Mulled Wine!
