Chasing and Repousse course in the italian style with il maestro
Under the careful tutelage of Italian master Fabrizio Acquafresca,
learn chasing and repousse
in the Italian style. Through the proper use of various specialized
tools, students study and implement the classical Italian approach
to transforming sheet metal into reliefs and other works of art.
Students will begin with a dragonfly relief, but should also come
prepared with a jewelry design containing fruit, a floral pattern or
an abstract image to realize in metal. This course has no
prerequisites and is open to students of all levels.
Fabrizio Acquafresca, hailing from a long line of artists and metal
craftsmen stemming back to the seventeenth century, works in his
studio in Florence, Italy. He has taught this course, as well as the
advanced Special Techniques in Chasing & Repousse, in England, the
United States and throughout Europe.
