This workshop will introduce participants to the world of sheet metal manipulation using a chiseling technique called “Chasing”. Students will be exploring pitch management, chisel design, and hammer control moving at a beginner to intermediate pace. Douglas will have several projects for students to choose from and will encourage everyone to challenge themselves at their own level. The idea of this workshop is to become familiar with design techniques as well as material sciences involved in chasing and repousse. The technology for chasing is simple, it is not the machine or hammer that needs to improve, only ourselves.
