Our club's purpose is to promote and encourage the phases of all aspects of our hobby. e.g lapidary work, mineral, fossil and specimen collecting, silversmithing and jewellery creation. During the months of May through September, field trips for mineral collecting are planned.
What is Lapidary?
Lapidary is the cutting, polishing, engraving and setting of stones. It is an ART and a CRAFT. As well as technical skills that are developed, the use and appreciation of colour, texture, design and form is developed. Our workshop is available to members 11 years to adult during designated hours. We will even train you!
Our club meets on the second Friday of each month from November to April inclusive, at 6:30PM. From April to October, we offer monthly field trips. Our Junior club for those 8 - 12 yrs old meets on Friday evenings once a month as well, from 6:30 - 8 PM. Our club is located at: 370 King Street West, Unit 209 Kingston, On, K7L 2X4
