Please Note you must be a member of the AFG, if you wish to attend the Muster or faceting Courses.
This event for AFG members is held annually at a location reasonably accessible to the majority of members. Over the past few years it has evolved from a weekend of educational activities into a 10 to 14 day event.
Typical activities now include five days of faceting courses and/or faceting workshop and other lapidary related activities. Some days of fossicking to local gem bearing areas precede or follow the two day weekend seminar. The purpose of the seminar weekend is to disseminate information on the latest trends in faceting and faceting equipment by way of educational sessions of approximately 30 to 45 minute duration. Other topics such as fossicking, map reading, competition procedures etc. are also covered from time to time. These sessions are conducted by members who are generous enough to share their knowledge and also by the occasional paid professional who is an expert in some topic that is of interest to facetors. The Annual General Meeting of the Guild is also held here on the Friday afternoon of the first week.
The program of activities for the 2021 event will be placed on this page about June when session presenters and tutors for the various courses are known. Also, keep watching for news published in Facet Talk.
