Wax Carving Demo in April

Cumulative Raffle Continues in March

Familiar with the William Holland School of Lapidary Arts? You will be! Each month, SFJAG members who attend each meeting will receive a free raffle ticket. In December, everyone who attended all eleven meetings will receive a bonus ticket. At the December meeting, we’re going to raffle admission – one week’s tuition – to William Holland! That’s room, board, and any class you want to take! And don’t let the “Lapidary Arts” label fool you. William Holland offers a wealth of classes in basketry, beading, lampwork, leatherwork, photography, stained glass – and more! There are 28 categories listed on their page, so something for everyone. More details at the January meeting. Remember, only registered members are eligible to receive a raffle ticket.

New Meeting Agenda

Starting in January, we have some important changes to our meeting agenda:

  • SFJAG will hold a board meeting from 6:00pm until 6:30pm before each meeting. The board meeting is open to all members. The agenda for the meeting will be posted on the website prior to the meeting day.
  • The formal meeting will last for about 30 minutes (really!). We will be using the website and our newsblast to communicate upcoming events.
  • Each month, we will have a hands-on project, instructor presentation, or a special interest presentation. In January, we have Kaska Firor doing a scrap wire chain project. In February, we have a presentation on wax carving for lost wax casting – and more great things planned!
