Megan Corwin Chasing and Repousse workshop at Pocosin Arts February 27-March 2, 2020

Chasing & Repousse:
A Modern Approach with a Traditional Base

NANCY MEGAN CORWIN

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 to create raised areas on the front side in low to high relief. Chasing refers to adding texture and detail to the front. Students will learn traditional (working the metal in pitch – a pine resin based material) and non-traditional methods (die forming) as well as how to make chasing tools. This is a process and skills oriented class, with the focus on samples. However, many students turn some of their samples into finished earrings and pendants as well.
