November Raising and Chasing workshop with Douglas Pryor:
Location: Hessen Iron Works
3230 S Dodge Blvd
Tucson, AZ 85713
This three day workshop is going to be action packed, for the first time at HessenIron we are going to be offering the opportunity to practice Vessel Raising in addition to our mid-high relief chasing. I have organized 2 lessen styles to choose from this time, raising a copper bowl/cup that we intend to chase in a following course in the spring, and low-high relief chasing on copper or mild steel. Students will be practicing one or the other during this 3 day workshop however the benefit is everyone will have access to all the demonstrations so that you may practice in your own time or have a head start for our following course in the Spring of 2018.
This is the first time we have offered both lessons at once in an effort to provide attendees a more well rounded foundation in this style of sheet metal sculpture and material science. Any skill levels can attend with confidence that we have projects with in your skill set and ability. However we will always try to gentle push you to discover some of your new limits with metal sculpture.
All tooling will be provided, from shaping stakes, chisels sets, pitch pots, and all the hammers! Of course if you have some of your own tools that you feel more comfortable with we more than welcome you to bring them.
Please bring your ear protection and eye protection, safety first!
