Katja Toporski | Monday | 6:30 - 10:00 pm | February 6 - March 27
This 8-week class introduces the technique of creating detailed three-dimensional designs in sheet metal through the process of chasing and repoussé. Chasing and repoussé is a great way to explore low relief, volume, and texture within one's work. Students will learn about chasing hammers, chasing tools, designing for and executing repoussé, design transfer and lining, working with pitch, texturing with punches, and planishing. Students will create samples and one finished piece of jewelry.
Prerequisites: Introduction to Metals + Jewelry or equivalent experience.
