We hear many people ask if our GRS courses are for serious artists looking to earn more money or recognition, or if these courses are more geared toward those looking for a satisfying hobby. The answer is both! Whether you are already working in your field or have always been interested in starting a new hobby, GRS courses are for you.
Each classroom is equipped with high-quality tools and benches for twelve students and the instructor. Learn more about the GRS Training Center Facility.
Each class is a five-day, 40-hour course. Classes are held Monday through Friday. The classroom will be open Wednesday and Thursday evening for 1.5-2 hours (times vary) for optional studio time.
Results vary and depend on the student. A class combined with the equipment has been said to save 2 years compared to conventional methods of learning.
We currently only offer classes in person. Learning hand engraving or stone setting really requires a lot of personal interaction with a well-qualified instructor. They are able to help problem solve things in-person that would be next to impossible online. However, we do also keep an online resource library that covers everything from engraving tips to how-to guides.
Every state is different. We are not an accredited learning institution, and, in the past, we have had limited success with customers who use the GI Bill.

No, hand engraving is the act of removing metal by pushing a sharpened graver through the material. Laser engraving only marks or discolors the surface.
While drawing helps, it is not a required skill to become a proficient engraver. There are many aids and layout tools on the market to help in creating a pattern on the metal.
GRS does not offer financing, but you have the option to use PayPal’s financing functions since we accept PayPal at checkout.
