Lapidary Demonstration and Displays
8th June 2019 - 15th June 2019
Lapidary is the art and craft of cutting, shaping and polishing rough stones or minerals and turning them into beautiful creations that can be used as jewellery or ornaments. Our primary aim is to ‘encourage an interest in natural minerals and the craftsmanship related to them, on a non-commercial basis’. Visitors can view these skills as members prepare stones, facet gemstones or do silverwork during the normal working week or may try gold panning (Saturdays / Sundays). Display areas also show examples of members’ work, part of the Club Collection of over 3000 minerals and a comprehensive library collection.
