Can I pay my membership online? We currently do not have the facilities to process payments for new membership or rejoining membership fees online. Once you are a member, you will have access to our members only portal and members are now able to pay their renewal fees by PayPal or credit card through the portal.
I have been a member of another Lapidary club, do I have to complete the beginner courses? New members who have previous training and experience in a modality can apply to complete an assessment and be approved through the MGLS recognition of prior learning course rather than completing the beginner course. Please ask about the course fees.
Many members, however, still choose to complete the MGLS beginner course to gain experience with the equipment available and processes followed at MGLS. It also provides an opportunity to refresh and refine your skills and meet other members.
What do I need to bring with me when I join? When you join the club all you need to have with you is the cash to join, wear closed in shoes & secure long hair if necessary.
To start the cabbing beginner course, you will need your own waterproof apron, safety glasses and ear muffs/plugs. You can purchase these at the clubhouse.
Do I need any experience in lapidary to join? No, our experienced instructors will teach you everything you need to know to get started.
What should I wear? Cabochon cutting is performed under water to surpress the dust. Therefore it can get a little be messy and we would recommend that you wear old cloths and closed in shores.
I work full-time, will I still be able to attend classes? Yes, Mt Gravatt Lapidary Society has many full-time employees therefore we run classes at night and on weekends.
When is the club open? Depending on the week, the club is open up to 7 days in the week. For more information click here.
