Under the careful tutelage of the 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 ginko leaf or dragonfly relief, but should also come prepared with jewelry designs of their own choosing. These designs may contain fruit, floral patterns (excluding geometric or abstract images) to realize in metal.
This is a two-part course. The Beginner's course has no prerequisites and is open to students of all levels. The Intermediate course is open to students who have taken a Beginner's course. The full course is open to all levels.
