Join us on Saturday, January 29th at the Banton-Smith Center for Blacksmith & Metal Arts, 2748 Dogtown Road, Goochland, VA 23063 for a class led by Randy Cox, Master Coppersmith. Using thin copper sheet material, you will learn the fundamentals of Repoussé (pushing the metal from the back to create 3-dimensional shapes) and Chasing (pushing from the front to define and outline areas). This work will be performed cold – no forging necessary – with wooden tools that you will make to create the impressions and shapes in the copper sheet.
