Our shop is now back to full scheduling. For full details, please check the calendar on this website.
Our current open shop times are Sundays from 1-4pm, Tuesdays from 10-1pm and 630-830pm, Wednesdays from 10-1pm and 630-830pm. In May we will be adding a Thursday open shop as well, 1030-130pm.
On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, we teach lapidary skills or how to cut and polish gemstones. Training is free and all equipment is provided. By the end of the evening, you will have created a polished cabochon and have learned how to use the small saw, grinders, and sanders. If you wish to learn how to use the large saws, please schedule your visit for Wednesday evenings
Open shop times are designed for members to work independently on their silver or stone projects. An instructor is on hand to provide direction or assistance when needed. Only students who have taken the beginner silversmithing course and are familiar with the equipment should use the shop at these times.
We have begun to offer silversmithing classes again. If you would like to take a beginner course, please email Eileen Moss at email@example.com to be put on an email notification list for upcoming courses
Our Spring Metal Rocks show and sale will be Thursday, April 28, 5-9pm, Friday, April 29, 10-6pm, Saturday, April 30, 10-5pm, and Sunday, May 1, 10-3pm. We will be in the Rehearsal room on the second floor. This show is being held in conjunction with the Potter’s spring show and is an excellent opportunity to get all those Mother’s day unique gifts
We have not yet scheduled any monthly meetings or activities but I hope to have our annual rock auction in April or early May, just waiting for Covid restrictions to ease
