About the course: 3 Day Chasing Workshop
Chasing is a style of relief work in sheet metal that can be applied to almost anything. From tea pots to battle armour it is used to create sculptural narrative in metal now and throughout human history.

For me the art of chasing is a beautiful fusion between illustration and sculpture. The ability to transform any drawing into a three dimensional form is one of the most exciting and challenging aspects of relief work.

In this 3 day chasing course we will focus on building a knowledge base of different chasing techniques, material control, pitch management, and how to use illustration and design to compliment relief work in sheet metal.

Participants will work on up to two projects in 18ga (approx 1mm) copper. The first project is a structured follow along design matched to the individual’s skill level. If there is time the second project will be assigned on an individual basis to best complement their growth and interests.

Participants can be expected to draw, it is not a prerequisite as there are many projects that can be traced but drawing is highly encouraged. As sheet metal is shaped it distorts and changes in volume requiring the maker to redraw elements of the design by hand. Certain intermediate to advanced designs can only be made this way, but not to worry if drawing is a newer skill set as we have many available projects that only require tracing.

Participants can expect to swing a hammer in this 3 day chasing workshop for 7-8 hours a day, the hammers are not very heavy but it should be kept in mind that it is very physical work.

All Skill Levels Welcome!
