Overview

Chasing and repoussé are complimentary processes that are among the oldest sheet-metal forming techniques. They offer limitless possibilities, from fully dimensional, sculptural forms to precise, pattern-based surface embellishment. Led by metalsmith Nash Quinn, this fast-paced workshop covers the essentials about pitch, hammers and chasing tools, and students will practice lining, embossing, planishing and matting techniques in both lined and unlined repoussé projects. Emphasis is on volume development and surface refinement. Students will learn to make their own tools and to modify tools they may already have. This workshop will provide students the knowledge needed to embark on their own chasing and repoussé practice. Tuition is $290, and supplies are additional.
