Sep 23rd.... Maggie Moraweitz will review the technique "Chasing and Repousse" which can be done in most metals.
Maggie is a Prize Winning Artist and a Hobby Painter 10 years ago she morphed into working with Precious Metals and now combines these fields into exciting marriages of unrelated materials. Typical themes in her work include theAnimal Kingdom, Hard and Soft Geometrics/Organics. However, dear to Maggie's heart is the Medieval Technique of Chasing and Repousse, where a sheet of metal is transformed into a 3-dimensional piece of Jewelry using steel punches.
Maggie was born and raised in Germany and followed the call to"Go West" by moving to Arizona 22 years ago with her husband, dog, and sewing machine in tow. Now a resident of New Mexico, Maggie has built her career in Fiber Arts and Jewelry, and rescues and re-homes abandoned dogs.
