Join us for this 5 week course on forming metal through the techniques of Repoussè + Chasing.
Repoussè is the art of forming metal from behind to create a 3 dimensional form using a Pine Resin Pitch.
Chasing allows you to put in the detail, creating the image through mark making and minor forming techniques.
Over the 5 weeks you will be introduced to a variety of techniques through small projects before creating your very own handmade belt buckle in Brass and Copper. These techniques can be used to create a variety of jewellery and sculptures, adding textures and detail. Explore how you can transform your favourite 2 dimensional image into a wearable object, while learning new skills!
In addition, you will learn how and when to make your metal malleable, sawing and filing techniques as well as different soldering processes, including sweat soldering and stick soldering. Final stages of your design will explore different finishing techniques such as sand blasting, polishing and various patinas.
*Price includes 5 weeks tuition + GST
