WHERE TO TAKE CLASSES

Just a little disclosure: the following list of schools and workshops have no direct affiliation with Metalsmith Society. I have not personally taken classes at most of these locations (wish I could) so I have no experience or additional information about them. If you have any questions or feedback please reach out to the schools directly! If you would like to suggest an addition to this list or an edit please email me: corkie@metalsmithsociety.com with "CLASS DIRECTORY + CITY/STATE" in the subject line of the email, include in the email the name of school, physical address, link to website, link to Instagram and contact number (where applicable). Thank you!!

If this community has been helpful to you, and you'd like to support the page you can become a patron for as little as $1 a month!
