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, facetting, beading and fossicking, as well as provide a well equipped workshop for teaching our skills to new members.

Once a year we host our annual expo in September, where you can experience all things related to our craft.

Our club rooms are open twice through the week on Tuesday afternoons from 4.00 to 9.00pm and on Thursdays from 10.00 to 4.00pm and from 7.00 to 9.00pm

We host regular casting workshops as well as Saturday open days which will be posted when they are coming up.

Thanks for stopping by, come and join us and you might find a new hobby!
