Visiting artists and our talented artist members teach local workshops in person and remotely. The one to five day workshops cover a wide variety of metal art techniques ranging from beginning metalsmithing to 3D sculptural techniques to advanced jewelry making. Many of the techniques taught cross the boundaries between sculpture and jewelry making and our artists innovate and adapt the techniques to their own unique styles and artwork.

Upcoming locally taught or online Monterey Bay Metal Arts Workshops are listed here first. We also list member taught workshops which are hosted at other sites. If no upcoming workshops are listed, check back later or join the email list using the field at the bottom of this page for early notification.

Members have first dibs at filling guild sponsored workshop seats and pay less than non-members for the workshops.

Free seminars for members are available to watch later via this website.

Previously held workshops taught with visiting artists and artist members of the Monterey Bay Metal Arts Guild are listed below for your reference
