|Mid-Hudson Valley Gem & Mineral Society, Inc.|
THE LAPIDARY WORKSHOP IS OPEN AT ITS NEW LOCATION IN WALLKILL, NY.
The "Trim & Grinders" are a group of members who are interested in the lapidary arts, including cutting and grinding minerals. We have a lot of lapidary equipment: In addition to two six-wheel Genies, three trim saws, and a 14" rock saw, there is a separate area for jewelry making for the "Wrappers" and other interested groups.
Members will be guided by experienced instructors. Members may bring their own material, purchase material from the Vug beforehand, purchase material at the lapidary workshop, or go through the small amount of free material at the workshop. Lapidary magazines and books are available to borrow to get ideas.
You can purchase a workshop ticket for a certain number of hours of time. It is $2.00/hour or $20/15 hours. These are some free slabs available to practice and learn on and there are other slabs that are for sale.
The lapidary workshop is open to members only. The lapidary workshop is located in Wallkill, NY. The location and a map are provided to the members. Please join our group if you want to enjoy this great resource!
The regular hours of the workshop are currently under discussion. Please check the member newsletter for dates and times.
