I teach the GIA extension manufacturing courses. I regret to say
that the only cities that will be offering the one week wax classes
for 2001 are New York GIA campus and the Carlsbad campus.
GIA will be traveling with other one week manufacturing classes:
Basic Repair and Setting, Intermediate Repair and Setting, Advanced
Stone Setting and Platinum. The locations these will be offered are
Michigan (Detroit area) Mar 28 to April 13, Chicago April 30 to May
24, Kansas City June 4 to June 22, Denver July 9 to 27
The New York GIA campus has the Working with Wax 4 day hands on
course Aug 27 to Sept 13, That is 4 days as a day class and 8 days
(mon - thurs) as evening classes.
The advanced setting class will also be offered at the New York
campus several times both as a day class and evening class. July 30
to Aug 10, you’ll have to call GIA for the other dates as these are
what I can remember right now
Again you need to call GIA for fees, locations and schedules.
Feel free to email me with any specific questions about the courses
or even staying in the different cities (i.e. staying in New York for
the wax class) I tell you what I know.
