Current mood: Hi, Jayne here. Coming back from a good Easter break. Watched 'Knives Out' online, it's a pretty awesome mystery movie. Anyway, continued with Escapement work this week and took the final exam. All went really fantastic. Great to be studying at home with the liberty to decide what works best for you. The virus seems to be under control. Hope everything gets a little closer to the norm soon. Meanwhile, take advantage of the lovely weather, find an adventure over the weekend. =)

Current mood: This week was a continuation of the last few weeks being focused entirely on the burnish. Being focused on accuracy and finish, too ensure quality I was on the right track I was able to correspond with Henrik about the quality over messaging which helped greatly.
Thanks too the extended Easter weekend I was able to feel a lot more refreshed and focused going into the new week and the weeks to come.

Current Mood: Another interesting week! Done sharpening gravers! Had an introduction about hand turning with a 8mm lathe. Started with the hand turning of some exercise given by Henrik. Totally love this hand turning experience. Looking forward to more hand turning.

Current mood: My journey of winding stem, like quarantine in Switzerland, may be coming to an end. Just finished the final exam and I think it is looking pretty good. I am not sure which one I will miss more once things get back to normal, working in my pajama or being able to visit shops. Anyway, this is it for me. Looking forward to working on side projects next week.
STEP 1: GRAVER SHARPENING (MICHAEL)
|READY FOR BATTLE!!|
|BATTLE COMPLETE; CHECK MATE!!|
STEP 2: ESCAPEMENT WORK (JAYNE)
I heard that we might soon be allowed to get back to more or less normal life, that would also be nice. Not that I don’t like the distance teaching, but it will be easier and more fluid the transmission of knowledge ones we are back again, we will also ones again be able to use the amazing machines in the school! Very much looking forward to the day when we are all back! Crossing my fingers!
Otherwise the students are doing great! No one is behind and everyone seems very positive! Michael sharpened some gravers that came out very nice! And is now learning hand turning in the 8 mm watchmakers’ lathe. Jayne and James had their escapement final exams and Alex had his winding stem final exam as well. Markus continue with practicing burnishing. And Pierre finished all but one of his pivot gauges. Have a great weekend everyone!!
