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

No physical meetings scheduled at this time.
Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic we have no meetings scheduled throughout 2020. We hold a majority of our meetings at Maryville University. Because Maryville University is allowing students and facaulty only on campus, they are not scheduling any events (ours or anyone's meetings). We are looking at having a "get together" as soon as we are able and restaurant type facilities are up and running. Right now Zoom is our friend and we have gone virtual. Until we can stand next to each other, stay distant, stay well, and we will be communicating any changes for gatherings as we are able. Keep creating metalworks!
No Workshops scheduled at this time.
