Metalwerx is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. Founded in 1998, our innovative nonprofit school and community studio provides jewelry making instruction on topics ranging from introductory classes to professional level courses, in a well-equipped, supportive, and enthusiastic environment.
Classes and workshops run year-round, with offerings online and in-person tailored to every skill level and interest. We are fortunate to work with a strong core of local, talented jewelers who keep our curriculum fresh and inspiring. We also seek out visiting artist-instructors who excel in a specialized jewelry or metalworking technique and have a desire to share their expertise with others. Online and onsite, students hail from all 50 states and across the globe to study with our world-class faculty.
As our mission is to provide individual growth and self-expression, we strive to ensure that every student’s experience is productive and memorable by encouraging support and collaboration within our community. Scholarship opportunities are integral to Metalwerx’s programming, and are intended to provide dedicated and aspiring metalsmiths with the opportunity to expand their skill set..
