Chasing and repoussé is an ancient technique used to decorate sheet metal with the most lavish and intricate designs. In this 5 day hands on workshop, Saign will teach everything from different methods of transferring images, tool making, and pitch preparation, to proper ergonomics, chasing, repoussé, and creating relief with only chasing from the front. You will not only go home with one or more completed projects, but also develop and hone the knowledge and skill to create beautiful pieces of art on your own.

Experience is helpful, but not necessary.

Pitch bowls, copper, and tools, and designs are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you own them.

Please bring your own eye and ear protection.
