Lapidary and Leatherworking Craft

Resident Campers at Camp Hantesa get the opportunity to do some pretty awesome handcrafts. Lapidary involves cutting, beveling, polishing, and setting precious stones. (Did we mention that you get trained on how to use power tools?!)

Leatherworking is a very traditional craft at Hantesa. Campers use dies and stamps to cut and imprint leather that they can later paint and seal.
