O que você fará

Guests are welcomed by myself and taken on a tour of our small on site museum to learn what Blue John Stone actually is, and to see antique items on display. I will explain how the family came to be involved with the stone and some of the geological background and social history of the mineral itself. Then we meet other family members and crafts people to experience how Blue John items are turned on a lathe in the professional private workshop. Guests will handle and learn what to look for when selecting Stone for particular projects., and compare the different colours and patterns of the Veins of Blue John Stone. Next guests go into the stone storeroom to find pieces to work with, sorting, measuring and washing the mineral themselves : the craftsmen help with cutting , treating and grinding processes as needed. In the Visitor Workshop guests decide on jewellery settings, and begin shaping , grinding and smoothing the Blue John Stone to fit . Whist waiting for materials to cool and glue to dry, lunch is served in the picnic room. Afterwards guests return to the workshop, to continue the smoothing process until the surface of their projects is ready for polishing. Next, craftsmen supervise as guests use the buffing wheel to create a lovely shiny finish to the stone. Lastly, any bails, fittings or thread/cord are added to complete the 3 projects guests take home.
