The Lapidary Room is the powerhouse of the club. This is where new members learn the art of rock shaping and polishing.
More to come as we proceed.
This room is where the budding Lapidarists learn their trade.
It is equiped with not only the right tools, saws, grinding wheels and lap discs but has experienced Supervisors to assist and guide you through the basic lapidary course the Club conducts. Once you have completed the course you are issued with a certificate and you can the embark on your own projects as many members do. However, the Club members are always there to answer questions and give you the benefits of their experience so you are never left wondering "how do I get this piece just right".
The Lapidary course costs $20 and you can take as long as you need to complete the course. Workshop fee is just $6 per session (usually about 3 hours) and that covers all consumables like diamond discs, grinding papers, water and electricity. Have a look at the images on this page to see just what some of our members have completed.
