Chapter 124 – Training, Workshops and Events

The goal of Chapter 124 is horological education – of Chapter members and interested members of the general public. To accomplish this, Lone Star Chapter 124 offers a variety of classes, workshops, and seminars throughout the year. In addition, designated “Open Bench Workshops” are scheduled for Chapter members to consult with experienced repairers about problems they are having with clocks, and to use the Chapter’s extensive collection of specialized horological tools to repair their clocks.

Some classes, listed below, are limited in size. Those interested in an announced class should register at the earliest opportunity.


Unless otherwise noted, all Classes and Workshops are held in our Training Facility at 102 N. MacArthur, Irving, TX 75061.

Some functions, such as One-Day events, may be held in the Grapevine Founder’s Building, located at 701 South Main Street, Grapevine, TX 76051, or as indicated indicated on the Schedule below.

For information regarding registration or other questions about classes offered by Lone Star Chapter 124, please email William Slough, Education Director at
