One of the unique facets of the Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies is our Workshop Program, which offers members the opportunity to gather for week-long, hands-on seminars taught by experienced instructors. Whether you are a newcomer to the lapidary arts and want to learn the basics, or you’re experienced and want to learn something new or hone your skills, the Workshop Program has something for you.
While William Holland raised their tuition this year, the SFMS has decided to keep the cost at $370. Just another perk of belonging.
We have some exciting news. Wildacres has allowed the SFMS to have another week for 2017. The dates will be July 23-29. The Wildacres Director (Rosemary van Wandelen) is actively seeking instructors for this new session. This new workshop will be in session during the big Franklin NC show (July 27 – 30). Folks will be able to take a day off mid-week and visit the show. Also the Grass Creek Gem & Mineral Show in Spruce Pines NC will begin on July 30, the last day of the workshop. You can leave Wildacres and go directly to the Grass Creek Show.
We look forward to seeing you!
