[Workshop] Discounted Engraving workshop


#1

I had contracted to teach two classes at Lassen College in northern
California. Both were canceled at extremely short notice, even
though they California. Both were canceled at extremely short notice,
even though theywere filled. A few of those Lassen students who have
been in direct contact with me (I was never given a complete list)
have decided to take me up on my offer to teach the same Basic Hand
Engraving class right here at my studios. I am doing this for half
my normal private class fee - for several reasons. I feel that the
students were treated badly - with only two weeks or less notice.
Students will have higher expenses for lodging here in Stockton than
they would have had staying in the college dorms. Both the students
and myself had already reserved this time slot so we might as well
get some use out of it. Hopefully this way, a few will still be able
to make good use of their vacation time… This class was to have run
for the two week time period starting July 9th and ending July 20th.

I will teach the exact same material that was to be covered at
Lassen 80" but concentrated into a one week long workshop.

I have space for up to 12 students, and this one-time only offer is
open to those students who were signed up for Lassen (they get first
preference) as well as any Orchidians I can fit in at the last
moment. Cost will be $375, This will include printed notes, design
transfers, practice plates, and 4 graver blanks. Optional projects,
knives, sterling keychains, moneyclips, etc. will be available for
those who wish to purchase them. I realize this is very short notice,
the reason is explained above but it could be a very economical
opportunity for the several hundred Orchidians who live in California
or one of the neighboring states Please call or email immediately if
you are interested in reserving a space, we start at 8:00 am next
Monday July 16th and end on Friday July 20th. 8 to 10 hours per day.

Others who teach, learn from this. Write YOUR contracts to include a
clause protecting you from short-notice cancellations. In the
future, I will be paid in full if the class is canceled less than 30
days from the starting date. If colleges or institutions don’t want
to sign, I don’t want to schedule the time, prepare for the class,
and package all of my equipment to go. I get to unpack it all
tonight.

For anyone who is interested in engraving, I support attending
Brian’s generous offer. He is a gifted teacher both in technique and
spirit. You will learn engraving from a master who will take the time
and energy to work with each and every one of you.
