Workshop Information

In Summer 2018, silversmith Rod Smart brings his skills to The Goldsmith’s Centre and invites you to join him in learning and experimenting with a range of techniques to create your own unique relief pieces on metal. 

Chasing and repoussé are metalworking techniques in which a malleable metal like copper is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief.

This five day course will introduce you to techniques using a range of tools in order to achieve a whole spectrum of different effects on copper. With practical tuition and guidance from Rod, you will have an opportunity to explore and develop these into a piece you will bring home with you.

Due to the amount of applications we have already received, this Workshop is full and the application line is now closed. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause, but please do look at our other available Workshops.
