The Devonport Lapidary Club Inc. is located at 31 Bay Drive, Maidstone Park, Spreyton. Our club is a registered non-profit organisation, comprising a group of dedicated volunteers, who strive to enhance the local community. Volunteers run educational programmes where participants can learn the unique lapidary skills. They coordinate public displays and demonstrations, to stimulate interest in this unique craft. The club acts as a focal point in the local community, bringing individuals and families together, from all walks of life, through a common interest, for minimal expense. The club offers visitors a mineral working museum which aims to preserve, display and educate the public about these beautiful and wonderful freaks of nature. Our museum includes gems, minerals and crystals displays, encompassing a small but important part of our natural heritage, fortunately saved from destruction. Club facilities are available by appointment, to school groups, community groups & individuals in the community. Increased ‘closed workshop’ sessions for school groups enable our volunteers to maximise the educational and ‘hands on’ effect of each phase associated with lapidary. Feedback from school ‘workshop’ leaders, indicates these sessions assist with education programmes (i.e. Science & Geology, pioneering and gold-rush days), confirming we are addressing the need for our service in the community, catering for all students, without bias.
