Workshops

Sydney Youth Stamp Group Workshop

Four Sydney Youth Stamp Group (SYSG) workshops are held each year during the school holidays for children aged 7 to 17 years.

We have a Junior group (7 to 11 year olds) and a Senior group (12 to 17 year olds).

The workshops are for children who want to further their stamp collecting enjoyment and skills and we especially welcome beginners.
