COMMUNITY + CAUSES
Metalsmith Society's three pillars are KINDNESS, COMMUNITY + EDUCATION. The community part for me has always meant we are inclusive of all people, we share our opinions and knowledge in a way that allows people to feel safe and welcomed. Metalsmith Society is supported by some sponsorship and most importantly all of you, but through your generosity I am able to make charitable donations. Here are a few resources and organizations I support, I recognize there are many more out there but it is a start.
We Wield The Hammer
We Wield the Hammer exists to provide metalsmith training to women of African descent in Oakland and Dakar.
