Shop till you drop for rocks, then learn to make a cabochon!
This workshop gives the best combination of a field trip, plus hands-on learning. We will begin with a field trip to the Denver Mineral Show where we will learn tips on how to shop for rocks from an expert. We will then return to Art Gym to learn how to make a cabochon from the rocks purchased at the Mineral Show.
We will meet at Art Gym @ 9:00AM to carpool to the Denver Mineral Show. We will depart at 2:30PM, getting back to Art Gym by 3pm. Once back at Art Gym, the hands-on cabochon workshop will be led by Kim Henkel from 3 – 6PM, where participants can have access to lapidary machines.
**IMPORTANT** The average slab costs $10-$20. Please bring (cash) for purchasing rocks. Lunch is BYO, or there will be food truck options available at the mineral show.
