Midwest Metalsmiths has a great tradition of sponsoring stellar Workshops.  As you can understand do to Covid 19 Pandemic the venues (Universities) that host our Workshops are unable to accommodate our needs because of CDC mandates, instructors are unwilling to travel and commit to travel for the foreseeable future, and we are dedicated to the safety of our members. As soon as things get back to some kind of normal we will be scheduling Workshops once again. Thank you for your understanding. Hope to see you soon and continue our learning together.
