Reserving Your Ticket

To reserve your ticket, click on "Select a Date" and choose the date of the workshop you would like to attend, then click on "Register".

Checking-in at the Show

Registered Ticket Holders:

All registration ticket holders must check-in at the "Make and Take" in the Main show gymnasium on the day of the workshop at least 30 minutes prior to the workshop time, or else their spot will be given to the next checked-in person on the waitlist! The earlier you check-in, the earlier you get to choose your desired colours for the workshop materials kit, there are limited quantities! All attendees must be able to hold a pair of pliers and twist open a chainmail jump ring to attend the workshop, this will be tested at check-in prior to the purchase of a materials kit.

Waitlist Ticket Holders:

Check in at the "Make and Take" in the Main show gymnasium when you arrive for your chance to snag a spot at our workshop if any of the registered guests do not show up. It is highly likely that spots will open up and many other waitlist particpants will also be no-shows, so be sure to check in for your chance! Remaining spots will be released 30 minutes before the start of the workshop based on chronological order of online reservation of checked-in waitlist guests, before being opened up to all other guests.

Other Activities at the Show

Aside from the chance to attend one of our exclusive workshops, admission to the Wonders of the Earth Gem and Mineral Show grants you access to dozens of gem, mineral, and jewellery dealers from across the continent, displays from collectors and museums, educational talks presented by our community of speakers, as well as lots of auctions happening throughout the weekend!
