Friday Aug 17 2018 - One Day Workshop

One of my favorite things when I visit Mexico is the little embossed metal shriney things. Usually they are filled with little saints (either painted or actual) and surrounding them are little decorative metal homes. In this class, we are going to explore metal embossing in conjunction with the art of assemblage. For those who aren’t familiar with this process, basically malleable metal is shaped and formed from the underside and then refined; this is also called repoussé and chasing. It creates these very nice raised decorative effects.

In this class, we will modify existing books. Could be a sketchbook or a novel by your favorite author, and they you will customize it using embossing and paints. I will show you a variety of techniques with this process and most importantly how you can combine it with other medium, such as sculpture and paint to create a little antiqued book. Sounds like a novel class...ba dum pah!
