Introduction to Gemstones
In this intensive introduction to the world of gemstones our expert tutor will guide you through the main areas of identifying different stones, realising their properties so that you can then be confident in using them in your own work or in buying from others.
This workshop runs from 6.30-9pm in which all students will look at a range of gemstones, what they are called, how they are normally used, what their properties are and how to find out further information if you need to.
Gemology is a huge subject, which can be studied for years but this class is a practical, hands-on look at the basics for jewellers or buyers which will make working with gemstones and picking the right ones a much more manageable task.
A great class for anyone using precious or semi-precious stones or beads in their work!
As with all of our classes, plenty of tea, coffee and luxury biscuits are included! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.
If you have any questions regarding this, or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
