About this Class:

Learn how to engrave by hand script lettering and ornamental patterns directly into metal. This course is for the beginning engraver—you will learn how to set up and use basic engraving tools. You will first learn to shape and sharpen your own chisels or "gravers." Next, you will practice cutting into soft steel, brass, and copper. Lastly, you will work on a final project engraving a pendant or keychain. Hand pushing techniques will be taught using a rotating engraver’s ball vise and an optivisor with 2.5x magnification. There will also be an instructor’s demonstration of advanced power-assisted engraving. Students will get a chance to examine and try out these tools as time permits.
