Gem cutting, one on one tuition in cabochon cutting and an introduction to faceting

In-person course
- - #28255

James is a very patient teacher, who demonstrates and explains each step. I enjoyed learning how to cut and polish a cabuchon amethyst. I am thinking about faceting lessons with James now.... Watch this space!

I myself give thumb up on this course from James. Nice man with good knowledge on lapidary arts of cutting. Giving yourself experience to playing around with gemstone cutting. You will end up making that stone yourself of cos with the master Yoodaa instructing you.
Instead wondering around on the internet for answers, is quicker try it yourself and bring home knowledge that you will pride for.

Response from Treasureworks:

Thank you Peter! It was a pleasure meeting you and you were an awesome student, a pleasure to instruct.

I've never been compared to master yoda before and it's a great hounour. I must say this:
Hmmmmmmmm! Facet you will!
Now you understand the way of the uncompromising critical angle, much light you will reflect from the darkness...

All the best for 2020!
Regards,
James :)

I was a complete novice and I am not really technically minded at all (for example, I did not know what a Dremel was!), but James was very patient and he explained everything very thoroughly. I came away with a good understanding of what equipment I would need and how I would go about producing a cabuchon. I was also pleased to learn that the cabuchon which I had produced would be posted to me.

Had a really great time with James, he is a fantastic teacher and very knowledgeable about the craft. As someone with no lapidary experience whatsoever I learned a lot from my first session in a very chilled out environment. This course gives you the opportunity to get hands on in such a niche field, and at the end of the process you get a lovely cabochon to take home! Can't recommend enough.

What an amazing experience. James is such a laid back and generous teacher. I learnt an incredible amount in the afternoon I spent with him and he then made himself available the following day so that the gem could be soaked off and I could return and collect it at leisure.

I would totally recommend this workshop for anyone with zero skills or more as there is just so much to learn and it's a really chilled experience.
