Learn to Engrave

There has never been a better time to learn the art of hand engraving. Advances is pneumatic handpieces, sharpening system, and optics, together with a good instructor make it possible for anyone to experience of thrill of cutting beautiful designs into gold, silver, or steel. I have taught hundreds of students in the USA, and some have traveled from Europe, Asia, and Australia to attend my classes. Whether you're a professional jeweler, knifemaker, experienced engraver, or simply looking for a new vocation or profitable hobby, I can help you. I teach all levels from absolute beginner to advanced professional.

Group Classes

Since 1998 I've been teaching group classes at the GRS Training Center in Emporia, Kansas. This state-of-the-art training center has been the starting point for thousands of engravers. In addition to my classes, there are several highly qualified instructors teaching nearly evey facet of hand engraving. Email me your contact information and I will have info sent to you so you can sign up for a class.

Private Instruction

I have had students come from many parts of the world for one-week personal classes. My benches are equipped with the latest GRS equipment and I teach all levels.

A few examples of my student engravings are shown below.
