Venue: The Goldsmiths' Centre
Deadline to apply: 31/05/2018
Dates: This Workshop will run for one week from Monday 23rd July to Friday 27th July 2018.
In Summer 2018, silversmith Rod Smart brings his skills to The Goldsmith’s Centre and invites you to join him in learning and experimenting with a range of techniques to create your own unique relief pieces on metal.
Chasing and repoussé are metalworking techniques in which a malleable metal like copper is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief.
This six day course will introduce you to techniques using a range of tools in order to achieve a whole spectrum of different effects on copper. With practical tuition and guidance from Rod, you will have an opportunity to explore and develop these into a piece you will bring home with you.
