GET TO KNOW CHASING AND REPOUSSÉ
Come learn about an ancient technique without having to invest in expensive tools! This class will introduce students to the basic concepts of chasing and repoussé without using pitch. Create sample pieces using thin gauges, learn how to 'frame' your work and about the new technologies available that will allow artists to produce and work with multiples. Having studied with 5 masters of this technique, my goal for students is to gain a new tool for their jewelry skills box with an easy beginner's approach! With a chasing hammer and a few readily available materials, you can produce sculptural forms that are light weight and strong and uniquely yours; one of a kind or repeatable elements. Tools purchased for this class can be used for many other metalsmithing techniques, Not tools you'll never use again! Returning students will work with the instructor on specific design projects. Bring your lunch and have some fun! Materials Kit fee of approximately $65 PAYABLE TO INSTRUCTOR at workshop. See www.spruillarts.org for further information regarding Materials Kit and a list of supplies you will need to bring to class.
