Cabochons l - David Sherrod
Students taking this class will be taught the proper and safe use of cabbing machines and trim saws. Everyone will be taught how to select, orient, and mark slabs for maximum effect. All students will first cut a calibrated oval from provided material to gauge their skills and identify areas for improvement. As confidence and competence increase they can advance to more involved shapes and freeforms with the instructor's approval. Individual attention will be gladly given as needed or requested. Students may bring their own slabs or purchase from the instructor's inventory.
