One day ENGRAVING SKILLS with tutor Martin O'Keeffe


Martin O'Keeffe was traditionally apprenticed at sixteen years of age to Master Engraver Derek M. Egan of Castle St. Dublin and has almost 40 years experience as a full-time, professional Hand Engraver (only a handful of whom still exist in Ireland).

Martin's approach to engraving and the teaching of that craft is enthusiastic, informal and pragmatic. 

"We all work within our limitations. With time and practice those limitations dissipate, but at the beginning, armed only with the most basic engraving techniques, (wriggle cuts and bright cuts) a student can achieve the most surprisingly beautiful results."


This practical, no nonsense approach to an ancient art form has seen Martin work with Ireland's top Jewellery Designers and Manufacturers as well as leading International Retailers to name a few...Tiffanys, Boodles and Cartier.

Learn the skills to hand engrave your jewellery, maintain and sharpen your gravers and learn the 'tips of the trade' from Martin O'Keeffe  - all levels welcome.


All copper is provided, as well as a silver disc pendant to be used as your finished piece. 


Our Courses run from 10am - 5.30pm and we will provide tea & coffee. As we are City Centre based, there are many lunch venues available in the close vicinity with the new outdoor seating area on South Anne Street added recently. All copper and silver materials are included and we will have pre-made designs in silver that may be used for Champlevée.
