Experience the NAWCC’s Mission in School of Horology Classes

The NAWCC is committed to being the world leader, educator, and advocate for horology and for everyone interested in timepieces and the art and science of timekeeping.

The NAWCC School of Horology is located in Columbia, PA, and its educational programs serve to stimulate interest in and preserve knowledge of horological crafts. We look forward to welcoming you to future classes.

A Message from the Education Director, Ken De Lucca 

As we renew and revitalize the School of Horology, our focus is on the four basics that should exist in any such school: 

  • Clock Education
  • Watch Education
  • Machining Technology for Horology 
  • Decorative Techniques such as Stenciling and Under-glass Painting

At the School of Horology, we are indeed fortunate. We have the square footage and the equipment and supplies to provide top-notch educational opportunities. Expert instructors will be engaged in their area of specialty to offer learning experiences for students of horology.

This is an exciting time to be a part of NAWCC’s School of Horology! Workshops are added once they are developed and approved. Please check Upcoming Events as listed on our homepage.

Will We See You in an Upcoming Class? 

Timepieces and the art and science of timekeeping are at the center of the School of Horology, but there’s more. We are lucky enough to be able to connect with time enthusiasts for the purposes of education, advocacy, and comradery.
