URGENT CALL TO ACTION
PLEASE SHARE WITH EVERY GOLD CLUB AND MINING CLAIM OWNER:
Welcome to the wonderful world of lapidary. In this class you will learn the basics of shaping cabochons. The process takes you through the steps of selecting a slab of stone, drawing a design, using a trim saw to cut the stone, and shaping and polishing your cabochon. The class also covers the basics of shop safety and how to use lapidary equipment. Other topics covered may include slab selection and advanced techniques. The instructors, Barbara Hartman and Lloyd Raymod, are both well qualified and have been teaching lapidary for a long time.
