Instructor: Valentin Yotkov
The ancient metalsmithing techniques of chasing and repousse are currently experiencing a rebirth among silversmiths, jewelry designers and other artists of metalwork. During this intensive, hands on workshop students will develop basic to advanced skills in the execution of ornamental chasing and repoussé designs.
They will learn how to chase a design, then raise the relief from the back of the metal and finish the details by chasing on the front. We will discuss the principles of creating designs for metalwork, safety in the studio, as well as the process of making tools, their different shapes and applications. All levels welcome.
