NEW! 5603. Lapidary - Turquoise Cabbing One-Day Workshop
Learn the special touch that turquoise takes to coax the beauty from this popular stone. You’ll start with slabs of turquoise, design and trim the shape and use a cabbing machine to shape and polish beautiful turquoise cabochons. Learn when and how to use backing material and concentrate on non-calibrated and freeform shapes. CabKing cabbing machines are used, and the class is limited to four students, one for each machine. All levels. No experience is required. Turquoise rough material is included in the supply fee payable at registration. Other supplies are included in the fee. The workshop open to ages 16 through adult. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.
