Introduction to RepousséENROLL NOW
Every participant will explore the craft in-depth in four meetings for a total of 16 hours. Students will learn the bas-relief technique with demonstrations and hands-on assistance to practice the process. They will discover the ancient art of repoussé using handmade tools, hammers, punches and the pitch, and working the metal directly (without molds) to create relief sculptures in copper or silver. As repousse is used for sculptural jewelry and metalsmithing, it has endless design possibilities for wall relief murals, mirrors and more.
