ENGRAVE YOUR HISTORY FOR A DAY AND FOREVER
With the Engraving Master Class, make a lasting impression on the present…
Practiced within the Atelier des Métiers Rares of the Grande Maison, engraving embodies the beauty of the gesture in its pure state. Secular, this decorative technique comes in several forms (line engraving, lacquer, modeled) made with a dry point and several gravers. Here, as in most of the Manufacture's workshops, the tool becomes an extension of the craftsman's hand.
During this Master Class, you will discover how to work a surface of precious metal in order to reveal the pattern of your choice. Under the benevolent gaze and the wise advice of experts from the Manufacture, you will follow the different steps necessary to create your personal engraving on a silver plate. After the application of the varnish and a first pass with the drypoint (the engraver's pen), the technique consists of scratching the material in order to trace the contours of your drawing while gradually removing small shavings of metal to give it shape and relief.
