Welcoming all Midwest metal artists, jewelers, makers or those interested in all forms of metal arts. Through workshops, social gatherings, scholarships and other enrichment opportunities, we are able to encourage artistic development, raise awareness and promote metalsmithing throughout the Midwest region.
Midwest Metalsmiths embrace many aspects of metalwork: enameling, jewelry, sculpture, blacksmithing, and vessels as well as educators, and gallery owners. Visit the individual member's page to acquaint yourself with the depth of talent and the broad use of metalsmithing skills. Meet Our Artists
