Chasing & Repousse
With Die Assists!!

2-Day Metals Intensive
Instructor: Nancy Megan Corwin

March 17 & 18
10am – 5pm

Learn about the ancient art of creating unique and detailed bas-relief on sheet metal, known as chasing and repousse. Working on metal sheet, using both pitch and wood, students will be introduced to traditional methods of raising and forming of sheet metal from the back side using smooth faced punches and hammers (repousse) and detailing the front side of the metal with sharper, smaller steel tools (chasing). We will also learn to use Masonite, wood and hydraulic press dies to facilitate the forming process and create multiples. No experience is necessary (though some metals experience is helpful).
Course # 12206 $245. Materials fee: $25. includes basic tools and supplies; additional tools and materials available for purchase.
