Repoussé is a centuries-old art metalworking technique in which a malleable metal (copper, brass, aluminum, tin, gold, etc.) is ornamented or shaped from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Students will get to explore the creation of a one of a kind art piece using wood tools to stretch the surface of a flat metal piece creating an embossed image.
