My Arlington Gem & Mineral Club has excellent classes several nights
a week. We meet the first Tues. of each month at 7:00 PM (817)
277-2286 1408 Gibbins Rd, Arlington, TX 76011. There's other classes
held on some Sat. & workshops. This is located 1 block S. of I-30
and 1 block E. of N. Cooper in Arlington, close to 6 Flags. There
are several other gem and mineral clubs in the Dallas area, but ours
is the most active in the U.S.
Also there is a guild in N. Dallas. I've forgotten the name but if
you go on the internet and look for Artist Guild, Dallas, TX I think
it'll pop up.
If you go to some of the club shows in the area you may find other
classes. We just had our 50th Club Show in Aug.
Then the next closes school is in Paris, TX.
Good luck, come visit us at the club.
