Discover new ways to express yourself in metal! Join Megan Corwin, an expert in the field, to explore the great textures and forms possible with the techniques of chasing and repoussé. This beginning level workshop will focus on specific projects designed to cover a broad spectrum of possibilities. Every student will start by learning to use the pitch bowl and hammer to chase, define and texture the front of a piece of sheet metal, and then to repoussé, forming from the back. Check out Megan's website to see some examples of incredible chased and repoussé work. Megan will provide tools for students to use during class and a selection of handmade chasing tools by Bill Dawson and Megan will be available for purchase.
