Educators will be available to demonstrate safe practices, tools, and processes for beginners. First-time attendees may purchase a stone from the Museum to use during the class. Attendees who have participated in a previous class have the option of continuing to work on their stones stored at the Museum. No advance registration is required for this program, and spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees include Museum admission.
