    Default Course in the Netherlands

    Hello,

    As a beginner I would like to learn the basics how to engrave before just starting to carve away. Do you know if there are engravers in Holland who would like to pass on a bit of their skills to a beginner. I have seen the course in Antwerp, Belgium, but was wondering if there is an engraver in the Netherlands. And offcourse I'm willing to pay.
    Greetings,
    Daniel.

    At the Vakschool Schoonhoven they give (or used to) hand engraving courses. I believe in the evenings.

    You can also try the link below. A colleague of mine went to her. You can have 1:1 lessons.

    Or ask engravers if they are willing to give lessons.

    Hi there,

    in Germany;
    the Europaeische Akademie der Goldschmiede, Silberschmiede & Juweliere is offering Engraving courses.

    http://www.fbz-ahlen.de/

    http://www.fbz-ahlen.de/index.php/se...seminare&t=ABC

    Its the training center of the german GoldsmithsJewellers guild. Prices are moderate due to Gov. support.
    Its open to anybody. Location is near Muenster, Northrine Westphalia, so not too far from the Netherlands.
    mostly 5 day courses, there are cheap B&B around.

    Another good option is the Handwerkskammer Muenster, (Germany) Bildungszentrum.
    Its the chamber of crafts, so courses are also not expensive due to gov. support.
