Total amount for workshop is $945.00
Hello my engraving friends,
There are many different facets to engraving and a life time of study to pursue. I will do my best in three days to give you enough to work on for a long time. No matter your expertise I will start with the beginning. It is important to see everything and most of the time when I am having trouble it stems from a problem with fundamentals.
We will start with some drawing exercises and discuss scroll design in the first half of each day. Tool geometry, tool sharpening, fundamentals of posture and then several different styles of engraving will be covered. If you like I will lead you through some inlay that will include stone finishing. So as you see we will do lots and for those that want to focus on a particular step, feel free to do as much as you want. I will help however I can.
You will need to bring your own equipment. I can provide air and a place to set up. Lighting will be sufficient but anytime you can bring your own additional light it is good.
Once you sign up for the class I will be more detailed in a tool list and if you don’t have an item like graver blanks I provide links to purchase those.
If bringing your equipment is going to be difficult because of air travel let me know as I have a couple extra vises that we can use. It’s best to bring what you are used to if it is possible.
For note taking and drawing bring your favorite pencils and paper. I will provide some paper for those that don’t have anything particular.
If you are to fly in American Airlines has several flights a day in to San Angelo from DFW. You can rent a car or we will coordinate with others coming to car pool. You can rent a car or we will coordinate with others coming to car pool.
You will have several choices for your room arrangements. There are a couple bed and breakfast locations about 5 minutes from our house. Once you sign up for the class will send you contact info for those.
San Angelo is 20 miles away that will have anything you desire as far as motels and restaurants.
