The Bendigo Gem Club was formed in 1967. We are a like minded group of people who like all things rocks, gems, minerals, fossils etc.
We provide club rooms for members to do jewellery making, silversmithing, castings, cabbing, faceting, and fossicking, as well as provide well equipped lapidary and metal workshops for teaching our skills to new members.
Once a year we host our annual Expo on the second weekend each September, where you can experience all things related to our craft including browsing stallholders, demonstrations, gold panning, metal detecting and gem sifting for the kids.
Our club rooms are open twice through the week on Tuesday afternoons from 4.00pm to 9.00pm and on Thursdays from 10.00am to 4.00pm and from 7.00 to 9.00pm (open $.00pm – 7.00pm subject to supervisor availability).
We host regular casting workshops as well as Saturday open days which will be posted when they are coming up. Follow us on Facebook for regular info, events and updates Facebook/BendigoGemClub
