Chasing and Repousse - Morning Sherrod
In this class students will learn the ancient art of moving metal into a three dimensional shape. This is accomplished using a set of tools called chasing liners and repousse punches. Planishing tools for smoothing and texture punches for pattern background finish off the process. All this is performed on a bowl of warm German red pitch. Lab fees include the use of all tools and materials. We will learn on copper. As you become more confident in your skills you may purchase silver sheet form the instructor or bring your own. 22 gauge, 24 gauge if fine for sheet metal.
