About the Canberra Lapidary Club...
The Canberra Lapidary Club formed in October 2000 following the amalgamation of the Canberra Gem Society Inc. and the ACT Lapidary & Mineral Club Inc. In 2003 the previous Canberra Fossicking and Metal Detecting Club Inc. also joined.
The Club has accumulated a wealth of experience and expertise to share in the many aspects of the craft. Visitors and new members are always welcome at monthly meetings, which are held on the second Thursday of each month (except January) at the Clubhouse. At these meetings there is a guest speaker, discussion of Club affairs and exhibits or demonstrations. This is followed by a light supper.
The Club has workshops and meeting facilities where instruction courses are held on an 'as required' basis in cabochon and opal cutting, jewellery making, faceting and carving.
Outings are normally held monthly. These are usually day trips but occasionally, two or three day trips are arranged to more distant collecting areas.
The Canberra Lapidary Club is a group member of the Gem & Lapidary Council of NSW and a member of the Australian Federation of Lapidary and Allied Crafts Association.
