‘Repousse’ – An exhibition to showcase handmade Silver and Copper Jewellery/Silversmithing pieces made here in Sheffield.
This exhibition includes some work designed and made by the young adults at Freeman College.
These students partake in work experience with the resident silversmiths at Butcher Works.
All work in ‘Repousse’ has been made using this age-old technique, A technique that requires the use of hammers and punches to create pattern, relief and design into metal. Walk across the courtyard to our Workshop and see where the magic happens! Perhaps have a go yourself at our bench in the gallery.
