ORNAMENTAL CHASING & REPOUSSE with VALENTIN YOTKOV
The ancient techniques of chasing and repoussé are currently experiencing a rebirth amoung silversmiths, jewelry designers and other artists of metalwork.
During this intensive, hands on workshop you will develop basic to advanced skills in the execution of ornamental chasing and repoussé designs. We will explore different ways to further enhance your work through the application of these techniques. Since good chasing tools are no longer available, you will also be introduced to the process of making tools, their different shapes and application.
Some tools are supplied by CCA, but please see supply list for additional tools and materials that will be required.
