Join us at Memoria Technica this August for a special one time class & lecture with Master Goldsmith and Watchmaker Phillip Peck.
This one time class is  a unique opportunity to learn from one of my mentors! 

Classes are over two days from 9am - 5pm with a lunch break. Due to small student numbers, our classes offer one on one tutor feedback.


Crash Course WW 8mm Watchmakers Lathe | Tutors: Phillip Peck & Brittany N Cox ($625)  Limited to 4 Students |
August 11th & 12th | Materials fee $25

This will be a highly informative “rapid fire” emersion class spanning fundamental to advanced aspects of the watchmakers lathe. Tricks, techniques and hard learnt experience will be handed down. This class is designed for the individual interested in antique and vintage watch repair and/or restoration. 

A review of the attendees will be taken to optimize and tailor the class to suit. Should there be individuals that are more or less advanced, personal attention and class structure will be adjusted to serve all that attend. 

This two day class will be broken up into segments: lesson followed by practical application. A WW 8 mm lathe will be supplied to all attendees to execute tasks and work with the actual tools. Should you have your own lathe, you are welcome to bring it.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to tool making, work holding, polishing/burnishing, parts making, the use of measuring tools and gauges and how/when to make them, screw making, and attachments.

Sacred Geometry - Second Edition
After selling out of the limited run of the Sacred Geometry coloring book, I've released a second edition! In addition to the original patterns, we have added another 17, making 88 unique patterns. 
The front and back cover are pressed with white and silver foil. The binding is spiraled white metal wire, allowing the book to lay flat as you color. The book is printed on 180lb uncoated white paper – so your coloring utensils won’t bleed through and colors stay true. This book is limited to 300 copies and is handmade here in Seattle Washington.

The shop was recently featured in the local Seattle news. That was a lot of fun to put together with Malia Karlinksy of Seattle Refined.
Guest blog author, Books & Paper Conservator Segolene Girard visited the shop to conduct work on a children's automaton barking bull dog toy. The work she did is really amazing. Check out the blog in the coming weeks for a post detailing the process.

The book I am writing for Penguin is still under way, although taking a bit longer than originally planned. There is so much to say about this wonderful and strange field I have the privilege to work in. I can't wait to share these stories with you. From moon landings, navigation, and magic, to music, singing birds, and more! 

What is at the beginning of the end,
the start of eternity,
at the end of time and space,
was in the middle of yesterday,
but is nowhere in tomorrow?
