The Brantford Lapidary & Mineral Society's workshop offers five Genie machines plus saws, polishers, a flatlap and jewellery making supplies. 


Interested individuals are welcome to join us any time the workshop is open to learn the art of stone cutting or use the equipment. All levels are welcome from novice to expert. In order to take advantage of the workshop, you must be a member of or join the Brantford Lapidary & Mineral Society.


For new members the first workshop is free and we provide a stone for you to practice on. 


We have a large selection of rough rock to choose from. It just might be the perfect rough to make cabochon to mount in a piece of jewellery or proudly display at the next gem show.
