COPPER WIRE WEAVING DAY CLASS 

(Limited time and limited vacancies - so be quick)

Alison is back in town for a short time before heading north again.  She will be conducting a one-day class on copper wire weaving for anyone interested. This will be a perfect opportunity to learn a new jewellery making skill. 

Those of us who have seen Alison's finished pieces know just how beautiful this artform is.

The one-day class will be held at our Clubhouse on Saturday, 9th July from 9.00am until 12 noon.  The cost of the class will be $40 for material and $4.00 workshop fee.

If you have your own flat nose pliers / round nose pliers and cutters, it would be great if you can bring them, along with your good self.

Numbers are limited to 4 students, so be quick.  FIRST IN BEST DRESSED.  Contact Alison on 0439 142 192 and secure your place.

Until further notice: 

Workshop opening hours for the Mordialloc Lapidary Club are as follows:  

            Tuesday 7.00pm – 10pm 

            Thursday 11am – 3pm   &  7.00pm – 10pm

            Saturday 1pm – 5pm.

As a result of Members requesting an earlier start for evening workshops during the Winter months, the Committee has agreed that the Club can open at 7.00pm instead of the official opening time of 7.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  This arrangement will continue until further notice.

Please note:  If the rostered Duty Officer cannot be there by 7.00pm, then the first non-scheduled Duty Officer to arrive will need to open up and take on the Duty Officer role until the rostered Duty Officer arrives.
