Come join us March 2017 for Engine Turning ! We are now offering three levels of classes.

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

Learn this fascinating craft on two early 20th century machines from the original Bulova watchmaking factory - a Lienhard rose engine and straightline machine. You'll also have access to the workshop library - with many books on the practice of ornamental and engine turning.

Beginners Engine Turning | Tutor: Brittany Nicole Cox ($400) | Limited to 4 Students | March 2nd & 3rd | March 5th & 6th

This class aims to provide students with a basic understanding of engine turning, set up, and simple pattern development. Whether students are looking into watch dials, jewelry, or are just curious about guilloché work in general, this class offers a good foundation. Most students leave with at least one finished project, such as a pendant or a writing pen and a set of guilloché medallions of different patterns.


Engine Turning II | Tutors: Brittany Nicole Cox + David Lindow($600) | Limited to 6 Students | March 12th & 13th | March 16th & 17th

This class is designed for those with a rudimentary knowledge of engine turning or guilloché work.  It will include lessons on surface preparation, demonstrate integration of divergent patterns, how to work with borders, laying out work that requires more than one center, and other advanced concepts. Whether you are interested in making watch dials, custom jewelry, or decorative arts this class will further your understanding and skills.  The projects will vary depending on the students interest, and the course will take a hands on approach.  This class allows the use of an elliptical chuck and other attachments. Each student will leave with at least one completed project. 


Engine Turning III | Tutors: Brittany Nicole Cox + David Lindow ($600) | Limited to 6 Students | March 19th & 20th

This class picks up where Engine Turning II left off. You'll have the opportunity to use a Hauser Jig borer, Schaublin lathes, and a microscope to layout and execute your patterns and projects. We also have some new pattern bars for the straightline machine to try out!

Each class includes five 1 3/8" brass practice discs. All other materials are pay as you go. If you have any special material requests please let us know beforehand so we can accommodate your interests.

We've been busy with new-making! Here are the latest offerings from the Memoria Technica Workshop. Hand made mineral stands and drawing tops are now available for purchase! All signed and numbered.
The Sacred Geometry coloring book of engine turned patterns is available for purchase online or at the workshop. I have one copy of the limited edition book set remaining (pictured above) out of 24. It comes with a set of pencils, an engine turned bookmark, a hand dyed tote bag, and an instruction book that shows you how to reproduce any pattern in the book on a rose engine. Pick yours up here.
The short run workshop magazine (zine) has been a great success! It is a small hand made booklet containing conservation projects, featured objects, magic tricks, and other horological related facts and stories. If you'd like to be on the mailing list, please subscribe here for $5 per issue, published 4 times a year. 
Ornamental Turning is coming soon to the Memoria Technica Workshop! Join us for the 2018 Ornamental Turners International Symposium here in the Pacific Northwest.  We will be hosting a workshop tour and some demonstrations. OT classes to follow!
