About this Class:

Class / 8 sessions / $180 / Metals Lab / Sat 1–4pm / Sep 26–Nov 14

Chasing and repoussé are metalworking techniques used to create a raised  design (relief) on a metal sheet. Repoussé is the process of hammering out a design on the backside of a sheet of metal, and chasing is the same process, but reversed. The two techniques are used together to create a finished piece. In this class, students will learn how to make basic chasing and repoussé tools, how to prepare a pitch bowl with plaster of paris and pitch, and do their own repoussé and chasing. At the end of this class, students will learn to solder wire onto the edges of their pieces, to give them a more finished appearance.

Requirement: Students must complete one introductory metals course at the Museum Art School before attending Basic Chasing/Repousse Workshop. Some supplies purchased from instructor.
