Repousse’ & Chasing
Explore the ancient arts of repousse' and chasing, two methods of forming and decorating metal that work hand-in-hand. Repousse' stretches and forms metal front to back, while chasing refines and decorates from the front, adding detail to the repousse' work. Chasing is also used as a decorative technique on its own. Students will work primarily in copper to create jewelry, vessels, or small objects.
