Introduction to Chasing & Repoussé

This class provides an introduction to the techniques of Chasing & Repoussé, raising and sinking sheet metal to create texture and volume.

We will work in thin tin, without heat, using plastilina clay as a resist. This class is suitable for anyone with reasonable eye/hand coordination–no strength or prior forging experience is required.  We’ll discuss the basic tools and techniques, and you’ll apply them to chase and raise a simple design in the lid of a small box.

Dates TBD
