The GTARMC hosts a variety of classes that teach skills including; beginning cabochon making, beginning silver-smithing, gem tree building, and wire wrapping. These classes are fun and interactive, and can teach the beginner or help hone the skills of the experienced rockhound. Classes and workroom sessions are for club members only. Be sure to check the newsletter and NEWS & NOTES page for upcoming class information.

After our rockhounds complete the training classes, they are eligible to participate in workshop sessions to use club equipment to create cabochons! Below are pictures from two of the GTARMC's classes.
