Repoussť is a technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped byhammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief.There are few techniques that offer such diversity of expression while still being relatively economical. Chasing is the opposite technique to repoussť, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. It is also known as embossing.
During this class, students will learn the technique of creating a wide variety of shapes & patterns by manipulating sheet metal mounted in a pitch bowl. The weekend will cover all aspects of the process, including: selecting and/or making tools, material selection, do's and don'ts with particular materials, hammer control, heat and pitch management, and more. Students will begin the class with a discussion of the concepts of the technique, then they will make a set of small tools which will be their own. Once the tool set is ready, everyone will begin working on a design to work into the metal. Students can expect to leave this class with the tools necessary to continue to work at home or their own studio, as well as at least one finished piece.Ages 16 and up, a materials fee of $50 will be added to the tuition.
