Lapidary Classes: Ongoing

Cabbing with Shelley, $35
This one day class is booked at your request, from 9:00 to 4:00 on weekends or weekdays.  Contact sapphire13@shaw.ca

The class will include the basic use of the CRLC lapidary machines required to get you started on polishing your treasure chest of slabs, rocks and stones into lovely domed cabochons or other shapes. Your instructor will show you how to make good choices in what you choose to cab and why. Please come prepared to get a “little” dirty, bring a lunch and most importantly your love of rocks. Note: This class will only take place with 3 paid participants.
