The club has a Lapidary Center where members can go to cut and polish stones that can be used to create jewelry. The center is equipped with trimming saws, a drill press, and a variety of grinding and polishing machines. An assortment of rough material is available for member’s use, and classes are held periodically.
The Lapidary Center is in the Barnes Nature Center, 175 Shrub Road, Bristol.
You must contact Lapidary Center Manager Mike Zagielski at least a week before to check on availability before going to the Center. PLUS, you MUST call or email Mike a day or two in advance to reconfirm or there may be no room or no supervisor, which means the lap center will be closed.
OPEN DAYS FOR MAY 2017:
The lapidary has volunteers for every day in May except for May 6, 20, and 27.
All hours are 10 to 2
