Old Pueblo Lapidary Club Classes and Shop Sessions


OPLC provides instructional classes and open shop sessions for its members. Class tuition and shop fees are charged to help defray equipment and facilities expenses. Time punch cards are available from class instructors/open shop monitors providing a discount to regular users of club equipment and facilities.

Any member in good standing can sign up for any class. OPLC classes are not open to non-members. However, anyone can join the club and take a class immediately, there is no waiting period. There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board in the club house. To sign up for a class put your name and phone number on the sheet for the class(es) you want to take.

Classes are usually held whenever at least four people have signed up for a class and an instructor is available. The instructor determines the class size. All the classes are held on a prepaid basis. If paying by check the check should be made out to OPLC. Please indicate the class in the memo area on your check. Payment should be given or to the class instructor. They will give you a receipt for the payment.

If there's a subject you'd like to see taught, contact our class coordinator. Instructors are needed in order for classes to be taught. You don't need to be an expert to be an OPLC instructor. All that's needed is some knowledge about what you are teaching and a desire to help somebody else. If you are able to teach a class, please contact our class coordinator. We guarantee you'll have eager students and no discipline problems!
