Hello and Welcome!

We are glad to see your interest in our group. We are a non-profit rockhound club.
Our purpose is to teach lapidary skills, promote the rockhound hobby and most of all HAVE FUN.
We have a Monday evening workshop where we teach cutting and polishing stones and other lapidary skills.
We also have periodic classes in silversmithing, wire wrapping, chain-making, beading, flint-knapping, sand art and
other crafts relating to lapidary arts.
