    Night hobby classes are run every Tuesday at our Glenfield workshop. Cost is just $10.00 per session for any of our North Shore Rock Club members.

    Special classes are held in Silver Smithing, Lapidary, Carving and other aspects of interest, when there are sufficient numbers interested. Materials used for working with our club activities can be purchased at the workshop.

  • Club Activites

    A gem show is organised once a year to display member’s work and collections to the general public and to foster interest in the club.

    Field trips to various locations are organised every month, weather permitting.

    A number of social events are also held during the year for members, such as a mid-winter get together.
