We take precautionary measures to keep everyone healthy; everything is disinfected after each workshop and masks will be worn at all times by anyone teaching a workshop. We are still be taking up to four people per workshop but everyone must be from the same family bubble, so even if only one person books, all other bookings for that workshop will be closed.

The workshop starts with a short talk about opals - where they're found, how they're created, how to see if a stone holds any precious opal - which will help when it comes time for you to choose your own parcel of opals. We have examples to look at and handle so that you are knowledgeable about which parcel of opals are valuable and have potential. Then you get to choose a parcel of three opals per person, ranging in size from 6 - 12ct. We then learn how to polish them to a high shine and release the gorgeous fire within the stones, which takes approximately two hours for all three stones. This gives people the unique experience of polishing genuine Australian opal. There is nowhere else where you can polish opals and it is very likely that the opals you leave with will be worth more than the money you spen

I'm an artist and a jeweller. I have been polishing opals for my jewellery for several years now and I still find it a thrilling experience, uncovering the fire within the stone, an experience that I'm excited about sharing with others. Opal is a fascinating and exciting stone and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and helping others to enjoy the opal workshop.

Our experience was with Peter, as Sonja let us know she couldn't make it due to exceptional circumstances. The set-up was fantastic, and you left feeling really knowledgeable. We went on a beautiful day, so when you weren't polishing your opals, you could watch the birds in the trees outside. We felt ready to polish another three straight after we were done - it was so exciting and fun! Our favourite part of our trip.

This was the highlight of my trip! Sonja was amazing and very knowledgeable in her passion, she was very welcoming and so was her puppy Rosie-Joy! Sonja was very tentative though out the polishing experience and showed us all her pretty pieces of opals. An awesome experience that I highly recommend anyone to do. You won’t be disappointed! We walked out with some beautiful pieces of opal that really let you take a memorable piece of your stay away. Even my boyfriend got more enjoyment out of this than he expected. I would do this again in a heartbeat and want my own polishing equipment now! Thank you Sonja for an unforgettable experience that we can always look back on with our opals on display. Much love x

OMG. This is a must-do experience! Sonja's passion is contagious and she really hosts an amazing afternoon. She tells you all about opal, helps you select rough rock to polish and lends her expertise so you can bring out the best colour in the opal. You don't need skill as Sonja gets you through each step. Highly recommend you try this. We will cherish our little opal display case for many years.

We had an excellent experience learning about and polishing opals with Sonja. I’d strongly recommend this class to anyone - even if you’ve never done lapidary before. It is sooo rewarding 😀
