Event Description

Ornamental Chasing & Repousse

Instructor: Valentin Yotkov

Nov  9 – 13

10 am - 4pm

The ancient metalsmithing techniques of chasing and repousse are currently experiencing a rebirth among silversmiths, jewelry designers and other artists of metalwork. Through carefully designed step-by-step demonstrations and personalized instruction Valentin introduces his students to the magic of sculpting in metal. During this intensive, hands on workshop students will develop basic to advanced skills in the execution of ornamental chasing and repousse designs.  Students will learn how to chase the design, then raise the relief from the back of the metal, and finally 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.

Course # 12N913    $1200.

Valentin Yotkov has taught Chasing and Repousse for over 30 years. He developed a unique teaching method which allows students to easily understand and learn the technique.  More than 1700 students, professional jewelry designers and silversmiths have attended his classes. Among them are members of the Tiffany & Co.'s silverware department.  Learn more about Chasing and Repousse at www.valentinyotkov.com
