Students will learn the principles of metallurgy pertaining to chasing and embossing, and be introduced to various tools, materials, and techniques needed to produce low- and mid-relief sculpture in metal. All work will be done in copper, and all tools and materials will be provided for student use. Students must provide their own eye-protection and closed-toe shoes.
