Virtual Workshop: BEGINNING CHASING AND REPOUSSÉ – MAKE A PIECE FROM BEGINNING TO END with NANCY M?GAN CORWIN

February 18 & 25 2022
3:00 – 5:00 p.m. ET

This workshop will introduce students to the exciting and long established processes of chasing and repoussé. The term repoussé refers to forming sheet metal from the backside with rounded steel, brass, plastic or wood punches to create raised areas on the front side in low to high relief. Chasing refers to detailing the front side of the piece using tools with specific shapes and sharper edges to texture, stamp, undercut and refine the surface. Megan will take you through the step-by-step process of creating several versions of a design using these techniques. Each version will have a different textural surface, and an undercut edge which creates the illusion that the design is separate from the background.
