Intro to Chasing and Repoussé with Nash Quinn

Monday - Friday, October 22 - 26, 10-6p

Chasing and repoussé are two complimentary processes that are the among the oldest sheet-metal forming techniques in use. They offer limitless possibilities from precise pattern-based surface embellishment to fully dimensional and sculptural forms. In this fast-paced workshop, you’ll learn the essentials about pitch, hammers, chasing tools, practice lining, embossing, planishing, matting techniques in lined, unlined, and top-down chasing projects. Emphasis will be placed on volume development and surface refinement. After becoming familiar with the proper use of the chasing tools provided, you will learn how to make your own from scratch, as well as modify tools you may already have.  In the end, you’ll walk away from this workshop with the knowledge needed to embark on your own chasing and repoussé practice.

All levels welcome.
