HILL CHALK FIGURES OF BRITON IN REPOUSSÉ COPPER TILES ONE DAY COURSE FOR ADULTS With Simon Summers Expert in Repoussé works 19th Saturday October 2024 9:30 AM – 5:00PM Location: Set within an ancient woodland upon a period Celtic Iron Age fort. Discover the chalk hill figures of the rolling hills of Britain... Majestic forms carved into the landscapes by our ancestors for all to see. You will explore the hill chalk figures and recreate one of the images onto copper sheet through the art of repoussé, creating a tile to adorn your hearth and home. Tutor, Simon will guide you step by step to bring these chalk figures to life in 3D form, so no experience is necessary. Using techniques of the first metalsmiths you will beat out by hammer & hand, finish and polish. These may fit within tile arrangements in your bathroom, kitchen or even be framed to hang about the house. >>> Optional sizes: 4inch square, 6inch square. Please confirm the size you wish to make from when booking. (Note £10 price difference). >>> Ideal for a gift! This course would make a truly unique gift for someone who would treasure the making as well as the experience of the forge environment. >>> Accommodation/camping: www.chiddinglye.co.uk Sponsored by Earthclan Structures – Period structure hire for events Email: info.earthclanstructures@gmail.com
