Website to the Tunnel Mill:
In this 3 day workshop we'll be exploring the plasticity of sheet metal (copper and steel) through material appropriation using repousse and chasing. This method is designed to keep the relative thickness of the material consistent to the original thickness, allowing the chaser to save material for sculpture and dramatic undercuts without losing the inherent strength of the material. There are a few projects for us to pick from. I intentionally design the projects to guide us through beginner and advanced chasing styles in sheet metals. All tooling is provided! All experience levels are welcome! All you need to bring is your curious mind!
