Valentina came from Bogota, Columbia to spend a week in my studio learning new hand engraving techniques. She was originally trained in Italy using old world methods. She did great and was a pleasure to instruct.

I love my job!

Sam;

In regard to Valentina's education of old world engraving methods of standing and using a hammer and chisel( I assume), did she have an opinion of whether she would have preferred to learn engraving using a microscope, sitting and engraving with a pneumatic hand piece?

She was anxious to learn with a microscope and handpiece, and was even encouraged by her instructor in Florence. She had only worked with hand pushing and not hammer and chisel. She took to it like a duck to water!
