2021 Fall Classes with Douglas Pryor

Price: $450 for 3-Day class

Douglas Pryor is coming to North Texas! He will be teaching a 3-day chasing and repousee class. Classes will take place on Friday (October 22th), Saturday (October 23th), and Sunday (October 24th) in the art building at Brookhaven Community College in Farmers Branch, TX. The 3-Day class will have a total of 10 limited slots avaiable. Since availablity is limited, it will be a "First-Come, First Serve" basis with paid registration thru PayPal or other arranged means. During each class, the student will focus on making his or her project based on Douglas's instructions. A current NTxBA membership is required to take the class.

The class will cost $450 which will include the materials for the project. Metalworking tools will be loaned out and will be availble for purchase after the classes. The pitch bowl and pitch will not be provided since several people already have their own. If you are needing a pitch bowl and pitch, we can direct you to where you can get your own or make arrangements to help you get them.

If someone under the age of 18 wishes to participate in the hammer class, a parent or guardian must be present to supervise and also be a member of the NTxBA (for insurance reasons). If you are not yet a member, you can sign-up & pay on the day of the class or here thru PayPal. You can add extra membership at the bottom of the page.

About Douglas Pryor:

I am a raising and chasing artist using chisels to sculpt metal. My particular focus is exploring and pushing the natural boundaries of what a single unbroken piece of material can create. I want to make things the world has not seen in a long time, using recognizably traditional human powered techniques. Traditions are only as healthy as the people who keep them alive, and that is the journey I want to share. I want to share the collective effort of breathing new life into these human metal working techniques.

Thank you for being a part of this journey, and thank you for adding your momentum to the art that has changed my life.

In this introduction to the world of sheet metal manipulation. We will be exploring pitch management, chisel design and hammer control moving at a beginner to intermediate pace. I have lots of projects for us to choose from and will encourage everyone to challenge themselves. The idea of this workshop is to become familiar with design techniques as well as material sciences involved in chasing and repousse. - Douglas Pryor
