Learn the Basics
Our club is very well equipped with grinding and polishing equipment.  Come along and let one of our experienced lapidarists teach you to cut and polish your own beautiful gem.
Learn to Facet
The Ipswich & District Gem Club has some very experienced and capable facetors who will hold your hand and give you guidance in mastering this facinating and interesting hobby. We don't conduct formal classes but after you have progressed through a period of learning how to make cabochons we will give you one on one guidance in how to facet.

We have a well set up faceting workshop with xx faceting machines rangeing from an old Hall to the latest Gemmasta.
Learn how to be a Silver Smith
As with the Faceters, the Silver Smiths will welcome newcomers and people wishing to learn how to create beautiful settings and jewellery. We have in our ranks some very knowledgable and skillful members who will be happy to be "show you how".
