Classes & Workshops

metal repoussé and chasing

Learn metalsmithing techniques to create three-dimensional forms in copper and silver! You’ll practice the skills of repoussé (creating elevated forms from the reserve of pieces) and chasing (embossing details and creating facets from above). Each student will produce their own work of art and have the options to add stones to further ornament their work. This class is open to all levels.
