On the Rocks: Intro to Stone Cutting

Course Overview

Students will be lead through the process of cutting, finishing, and polishing a variety of agates—perfect for your next craft or jewelry project. While the class will focus its exploration of the properties of fancy agates and jaspers, students are invited to bring their own stones as well. The techniques learned in this course will apply to creating all kinds of cabochons, or polished gemstones. It’s time to empty those jars of pebbles and reveal the unique and natural beauty of cut and polished stones! Materials fees will be collected by the instructor at the conclusion of class.
