Make Your Name Stamp with Peter Ross

Stamp like the Schwarz with with your own steel stamp! Using early 19th century planemaker’s stamps as models, we will make intaglio stamps for use in end grain. These make a mark with recessed background and raised letters. Decorative or sawtooth borders are possible options. In addition to hand filing and other bench skills, we will also cover basic hardening and tempering. Peter Ross is former master of the Anderson Forge at Colonial Williamsburg. This workshop will be conducted at Peter's forge, fifteen minutes northwest of Pittsboro in the community of Silk Hope.
