Wat je gaat doen

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
Other things to note
No experience is required and it is suitable for children 12+ with adult supervision. There are no refreshments for sale on site.

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.

Peter is a wonderful and friendly guy who took us through the process of polishing opals. His knowledge and expertise was really helpful in this experience. We definitely recommend this experience for any visitors to Katoomba as its not everyday where you get to polish your own opals!

Sonja obviously has great knowledge and love for these beautiful stones and can really help you find the best in a piece. It’s amazing to watch the sparkle emerge from a rough rock! She also has delightful and friendly animal friends who were keen to say hello. I’m definitely recommending this experience to my friends and may well go back myself!
