ANNUAL ENGRAVE-IN and Glyptic Arts Gathering

The 11th Annual  Engrave-In is scheduled  for June 5-7, 2016.  The Engrave-In is a combination of educational and entertainment relating to the those who chose to embellish metal.  This years seminars will be held on scroll design, bulino work,  scroll shadow and complex inlays. Noted author Roger Bleile will be in attendance to sell and sign his books. Tool manufacturers like Lindsay and Enset will have displays and demos of their equipment.  Usually there ten or more tailgate displays and often complete bench setups.

We try to maintain an atmosphere that offers something to everyone, welcoming beginners, spouses, clients, journalists, and anyone interested in the art. It is good mix from Masters of the art to wannabes.  In past years we have seen as many as six foreign countries represented, as well as many of the fifty states. We see many hobo nickel carvers in attendance each year as well.   This event is held at Scott Pilkington’s place in the mountains of Tennessee.  Scott is a Master Engraver of over 30 years experience, as well as credentials as a  teacher and instructor at places like the Appalachian Center for Crafts and the GRS Training Center in Emporia,  Kansas.

In addition to the seminars, The Engrave-In offers  lots of great  food, picking and grinning, and a wonderful chance for engravers to relax with one another in a no stress atmosphere. We welcome all engravers as well as their spouses and children.

The price of admission to this fablous event is without fee, but we do graciously accept donations.
