I’m so excited to announce engine turning classes here at the Memoria Technica workshop! It’s been a long time in the making, but I’m finally set up to start holding regular classes. If you’re interested, please sign up on the Classes page found on the top menu bar. There you will find full course descriptions, dates, and costs. We are presently accepting applications for our January/February classes.

Click here and here to see what we got up to in our previous sessions. Students will have the opportunity to learn on both the rose and straight line engines. These two beautiful antique machines are from the Bulova watchmaking factory.

Here’s a quick description of the three upcoming classes:

January 23/24 – A 2-day Intro to Engine Turning class, geared towards newbies to the field. Whether students are looking into watch dials for jewelry, or curious about guilloché work in general, this class caters to individual’s interests via a variety of projects.

January 30/31 – A 2-day Intro to Engine Turning class, geared towards newbies to the field. Whether students are looking into watch dials for jewelry, or curious about guilloché work in general, this class caters to individual’s interests via a variety of projects.

February 6/7 – A 2-day, more intermediate Engine Turning #2, includes lessons on blank preparation, integrating divergent patters, and laying out work that requires multiple centers.

If you have any questions on the classes, be sure to get in touch!

UPDATE: due to a number of recent inquiries – we added another Beginners Class on the weekend of January 23/24.
