Lapidary Workshop


The Lapidary workshop is fully equipped with high speed diamond grinders, grinding and sanding machines, automatic and hand cutting machines, as well as polishing machines and a gem stone saw. Walter maintains an inventory of settings for students to make pendants, earrings, and rings.

We have been talking for quite while now about rebuilding our Lapidary workshop in order to make it more efficient and get it all into one area so we finally did it over the last bank holiday weekend, it took about 2 days to complete.

The other reason for doing this was that we wanted to have the workshop enclosed so that the warmth from the wood burner won’t be lost and we will then be able to work out there during the winter as well.

All of the worktops are made from 12mm marine ply which have had numerous coats of clear varnish applied.

So here are a few pictures of were we live!
