If you have the chance to take a class or private training session on chasing & repousse work from Liza Nechamkin-Glasser, jump on it! Liza shares her decades of decorative metal experience through well thought out demonstrations, photographs and physically studying the pieces she has created. The practice pattern she chose for us teaches specific skills, and is designed to be revisited again and again with different techniques as we gain experience. Just watching the way Liza deliberately moves metal is priceless!
— Jane Dreis, Metalsmith
