    CHASING & REPOUSSE WITH HEATHER McLarty at Adams Forge

    DATE:  Sat and Sun, February 15 - 16, 2020

    The class will run from 9:00 am to approximately 3:00 pm each day, with a one hour break break for lunch. Students must attend both days. 

    PRE-REQUISITES: This class is appropriate for students who are new to chasing and repoussé, as well as those with experience who want to learn more. The fee for this class includes copper sheet and the use of pitch, and pitch bowls, and tools. All students must have completed Discovery at Adam’s Forge to participate. 

    CANCELLATION: Please note that we have a 7 day cancellation policy for workshops after which we are not able to provide a refund.

    FEE: $250

    DESCRIPTION:

    Experience the ancient magic of transforming copper sheet into a multidimensional form and a work of art! In this two-day workshop, chasing and repoussé expert, artist-blacksmith and President of Adam's Forge Heather McLarty will teach the techniques of copper chasing and repoussé. This class will introduce students to a whole new set of metalworking tools including hand held chasing and repoussé tools, specialty hammers, working with pitch and pitch bowls. Together, these techniques and tools allow for the creation of intricate designs with dramatic volume and depth. Picture a raised image of a lion applied to the front of a medieval shield or set of armor and you have a good idea of how these techniques were used in the past. In this workshop students will explore how to create a design that can be shaped and manipulated into a multidimensional form. Then, students will be introduced to the various tools needed to execute their design. Following a demonstration each student will design and execute their own work. Tools and material will be provided. If you have a design in mind, be sure to bring it with you to class! If not, we will help you come up with a design and will have design books on hand during the workshop for inspiration. Once you are registered in this workshop, you are invited to confer via email with Heather to review your design ideas. For students new to the technique, a simple design is best to start. Students with their own tools are encouraged to bring them.
