“Chasing and Repoussé Course”
The technique of chasing and repoussè involves the process of applying sheet metal (brass, copper, gold, argentium silver, or sterling silver) to a board of tar, then forming the metal using a hammer and different shapes and sizes of specialized handmade chasing tools. Fabrizio has always been dedicated and enthusiastic about sharing his skills and knowledge of this process.
Under the careful tutelage of Italian master Fabrizio Acquafresca, learn chasing and repoussé in the Italian style. Through the proper use of various specialized tools, students study and implement the classical Italian approach to transforming sheet metal into reliefs and other works of art. Students will begin with a dragonfly relief, but should also come prepared with a jewelry figurative design containing fruit, a floral pattern and (not abstract image) to realize in metal. This course has no prerequisites and is open to students of all levels.
