Hastings Community Centre
3096 East Hastings Street
We meet on the fourth Friday of each month except July, August and December, at 7 pm in the Hastings Community Hall of the Hastings Community Center. The entrance is located on Pender Street just behind the Gym.
We are a community of people who come together because of our common interest in lapidary.
The Hastings Club has been active for over 65 years. Interests of members range from all aspects of the lapidary arts to rock, mineral, and fossil collecting. We have a well equipped workshop where we cut cabochons, facet stones, as well as polish and set jewelry. More than half of our members are accomplished silversmiths and jewelry designers. Some make gem trees, do enameling, carve rocks and wood, or collect minerals as well. We also organize regular field trips to various rock hunting areas. Our club formed in 1958 and within a short time club members were participating in local and BC shows.
If you want to learn more about us we encourage you to drop in to our meetings as a guest. Or you can email us with any questions.
