Learn the high relief hammered techniques of chasing and repoussé, used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Celts, and which is little known in the West. Participants will create at least 2 pieces suitable for pins or pendants while learning the secrets of achieving exquisite detail and unsurpassed depth. No tool making required! Victoria will provide sets of tools for use during the workshop that were Swiss machine replicated from her own.
If you don't like working on sticky black pitch, this is the class for you.

Victoria's work in this technique has been featured in many books and magazines, including Metalsmith, Jewelry Artist, and Chasing & Repoussé, and as the newest instructional DVD in her internationally acclaimed series, Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters.
