Details

Hand engraving is the oldest technique used to carve an image onto metal. Engraving can be superficial, like monograms and ornamental patterns, or deep, leaving a relief in the metal. By using “gravers,” which are specialized steel push chisels, an engraver cuts a variety of shapes into the surface of a softer metal. Lean over the master’s shoulder as you learn how to prepare and use the most essential gravers. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the basic cuts that are the foundation of ornamental, pictorial and letter engraving. Plus, learn techniques to engrave on the curved surface of a ring. Practice all of these techniques as you are guided by the instructor. Prerequisite: Setting 1 or experience. Hratch Nargizian is a master engraver representing the fifth generation of metal artists in his family. He graduated from the College of Arts and Crafts in Armenia and moved to the Bay Area decades ago, where he started out engraving trophy belt buckles for cowboys. Hratch resides in San Francisco, where he works for the trade and creates one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
