June 20, 2012 — Heidi Marsh, renowned for her hard metal engraving and her softer scrimshaw work, will be teaching her craft at Lassen Community College July 16 – 20.
Although the class is billed as Advanced Hard Metal Engraving, she welcomes beginning students as well, and will include instruction in scrimshaw as time allows.
Students will not only learn techniques, they will also explore design, layout and lettering.
The Safari Club and others have commissioned Marsh to engrave scenes, scrolls and wildlife images on firearms and other materials.
She also creates jewelry with her scrimshaw art, including portraits of pets, birds, flowers and other images.
Her class is part of the Summer 2012 NRA Gunsmithing program at Lassen College.
The 10-day class will have long hours, but Marsh says they pass almost unnoticeably when one is engrossed in artwork.
For more information or to attend her class, call 251-8800.
