Join us for this workshop and learn how the Greek and Thracian goldsmiths used Chasing and Repousse to decorate their fantastic gold and silver vessels. Beginners will chase intricate designs using fine liners. Intermediate level students will master deep chasing which resembles repousse, and those with advanced skills will create designs in high relief using the snarling iron. All levels welcome.
