Gem Cutting Classes
Learn the basics of gem cutting by making your own cabochon. You will use lapidary saws to create slabs and preforms. Then you will grind and polish them into finished gemstones as shown above. No prior experience is required. The class is open to anyone 18 years or older.
This class is a prerequisite for anyone interested in joining the Clearwater Lapidary Club.
Classes are held at the Clearwater Nature Center in our Lapidary Workshop.
