The GTARMC hosts a variety of classes that teach skills including; beginning cabochon creation, 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. Most classes and workroom sessions were on hold due to COVID - 19 but resumed in June 2021 for those club members fully vaccinated for COVID-19. A spring silversmithing class is took place in May with COVID safety requirements. Be sure to check the NEWS & NOTES page for upcoming class information.

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