About our Chasing and Repousse Workshop ……

-                     Maximum 7 students

-                     A wealth of information, skills and an instructional package.

-                     Basic tools will be provided and full sets will be available for sale.

-                     The beginning Repousse class will not involve any tool making.  A Repousse artist needs to know how to make tools.  However, they need to know how to use them first.  The relationship between the working end of the tool and the metal is critical for success.

-                     Students should be able to complete two small copper Repousse pieces during the workshop.

Chasing & Repoussé Workshop ~ Description:

Students will learn the fundamentals of moving metal using small tools and hammers to create high relief in almost any type of metal.  The techniques of Chasing and Repousse utilize the plasticity quality of metal, allowing high relief to be achieved.

The Material fee is high because students will leave the class with their own 8” diameter pitch bowl (deep bowl, not thin) filled with Red German pitch and a Repousse hammer.  We find that most students buy these items anyway after the class because without them, you can’t go home and practice what you have learned!  You will be purchasing these items with your materials fee BELOW RETAIL. An 8”pitch bowl kit will run $112-$130 alone.   Repousse hammers can range from $10-$50 depending on the quality.  The hammers included in the fee are a good quality, economy hammer.  This hammer will last for years if you choose not to upgrade to a German hammer later. If you have your own hammer or pitch bowl, please contact us for a reduced material fee.

What our Students say...

" Well organized, learned a lot. highly recommended."

" Best workshop yet! I Learned more in three days than in several other classes."

" Your recent course was a real learning kick-off. Now I'm in the right track working hard."

" Chasing class was excellent! Tools were available for use, so all of the time was spent on actually learning to create images in metal, not making tools."
