On the course Greg will cut your engraving tool and you will be shown how to make a frosting tool from tool steel. You will be taught how to transfer your design onto metal and then shown how to use the engraving tool through a series of short projects, such as scrolls, birds and different types of texturing that will continue onto the following workshop.

Greg did a 5 years apprenticeship at James Purdey and sons where he completed under Paul Chung. He gained his freedom of the city of London and become a full time engraver there for 13 years, until he went self employed 7 years ago. He has worked for the majority of all the London gunmakers in this time, and also worked on some exclusive jewellery pieces along with some really cool watch makers; his latest thing is guitars and guitar parts!
