Every year about this time it begins the 'burning-the-candle-at-both-ends' routine almost every day. Between teaching engraving classes to beginners, events in the stores, and work at my Studio in McKinney, TX, every minute of every day is filled! And I love it!
Above is the 'lab' where I train a few new people during 5-6 Workshops annually. It's a hotel conference room set up for up to 10 students, max, per class. Each learns how to do what I've been doing for 27 years!
People who come to the 3-1/2 day event, learn the technique I developed that makes hand-engraving possible for ANYONE wanting to sit and learn during these classes. Art talent and Calligraphy experience aren't necessary and your handwriting doesn't matter! It's a TECHNIQUE and anyone can learn.
FREE WINE ENGRAVING events at the MARKET STREET stores in Texas and New Mexico begin October 4, 5, and 6 in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. After that, come events in Lubbock, Midland, Odessa, and all the stores in the Dallas area. The full schedule, FREE WINE & SPIRITS ENGRAVING, is at kenbrown.com
If you have questions about the Workshops or FREE engraving events, call me. Hand-engraving is an exciting and rewarding business....not only during the Christmas holidays, but every day of the year when people need personalized gifts.
Hope to see you somewhere soon!
