Hybrid Cutting Classes

This class is specifically designed for proficient diagram cutters who would like to expand their knowledge with non-diagram cutting.

This is NOT an “introduction to cutting” class.

The prerequisites for this class are; you have proficient knowledge in how to orient rough, preforming, dopping, basic machine operation and polishing.

This class is specifically designed to teach precision cutting without the need or constraint of a diagram.

 

I call this style of cutting Hybrid Cutting.

 

Hybrid cutting will increase your speed dramatically and increase yield on every stone. Not to mention complete artistic freedom that will astound and delight your clients allowing you and them to make more money.

This class will be held Monday September 20th through Friday September 24th, 2021 at a luxury estate near San Antonio, TX. This spacious 12.5 acre estate features 7 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The grounds are expansive with tennis courts, koi pond, 4 large covered decks, hammocks and a secret garden.

The curriculum is involved, and in order to stay on track with the course outline, we need you to be working on a machine you are already familiar with. Therefore you are required to bring your own machine and all the equipment that is needed to facet a gemstone start to finish.

 

The cost is $4000 per person and that includes instruction, accommodations, meals, and gemstone rough.

To reserve your seat in this class a $1000 non-refundable deposit is required and payment in full before September 1st, 2021.

If the class is not full by July 15th 2021, the class will be cancelled and any deposits paid will be refunded.

I have thoughtfully developed this curriculum to ensure you leave with a certain skillset. This is a serious class for serious cutters!
