A New Beginning

Ladies and gentlemen, you may sharpen your gravers. The official GRS Training Center season began this week with a pair of courses designed to give new engravers a good foundation.

The doors opened to a group of enthusiastic students who were ready to learn. Jake Newell taught Basic Metal Engraving and Diane Scalese instructed students in Basic Western Engraving.

In each class, the students learned how to properly sharpen tools. The Basic Metal Engraving students learned shading techniques, background treatments, how to use a rotary tool, letter engraving, and basic inlay. The Basic Western Engraving students learned how to execute wriggle cuts and bright cuts, how to engrave flowers and leaves, shading techniques, and planning for curved surfaces. It was a busy week, but students built a strong foundation for future learning.
