Current and Upcoming Events

MBMAG aspires to nurture the art of metalworking in the wider public via instruction, lectures, hands-on demonstrations, workshops, community outreach, collaborations with other metal guilds and schools and colleges, and more.

Our friendly and helpful community of beginners, emerging artists, as well as world-class metal artists welcomes everyone to join.


The Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild (MBMAG) is a diverse guild comprised of artists, collectors, professional art educators, practitioners, gallerists, advocates, and new enthusiasts of metalsmithing. We welcome all people at all levels of experience and appreciation for making art in metal. We are based in the picturesque Monterey Bay area of California and our members live in many diverse locations. Everyone is welcome to join from wherever they live.
