HAND ENGRAVING: SUMMER SCHOOL – FULLY BOOKED
22nd-26th July 2019, 10am-5.30pm (five day intensive course, Monday-Friday)
NEW FOR 2019! Using the workshop at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in central London, the one week summer school will introduce promising beginners to hand engraving. Overseen by one lead tutor, Angus McFadyen, the course also has five visiting tutors from a broad range of engraving specialisms including seal engraving and gun engraving. The one week format will enable students to explore hand engraving at a greater depth than is possible at the Association’s weekend courses. It will also enable tutors to identify potential apprentices within the student group.
Aimed at school leavers, undergraduates or aspiring engravers wishing to develop craft skills and learn about career paths in hand engraving, this is a practical, hands-on skills led course combined with talks and demonstrations from professional engravers.
The course will be tailored to the needs and levels of its participants. Specifically, what we cover will depend on what you tell us about your background, and what you hope to gain.
With thanks to the generous support of our partner, the Goldsmiths’ Centre, the course is offered FOR FREE. To be eligible to apply for a place you must return a completed application form, be UK resident and a member of the Hand Engravers Association. (Join at www.membermojo.co.uk/handengravers). There is no age limit.
