Metalwerx is working hard to define policies and procedures to keep everyone safe and healthy.  The COVID-19 situation is evolving quickly, and we are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and do the right thing for our community. Our board of directors, staff members, and director are closely following the news and following all recommendations by the board of health. 

​Metalwerx's current plans are listed below. As the situation changes, we will respond accordingly and keep our community informed.

Upcoming workshops are being considered on a month to month basis. We have canceled all our in-person workshops and classes through June 30th, and are assessing classes beyond June 30th on a month to month basis.

Open Studio Time: There will be no open studio time offered until further notice.

Upcoming workshops are being considered on a month to month basis. You will hear from us directly if you are enrolled in a workshop taking place through June 30th. 

Withdrawal Options: We encourage you to stay hopeful with us and in your participation in upcoming courses but we also understand current circumstances may change your ability to join us in the near future. We have outlined options below to consider going forward.

Course Credit: Metalwerx operates primarily on the revenue collected for upcoming / future courses and events. If you would be willing to accept a full tuition course credit for your class, it would enable us to continue administrative operations and pay our staff while in the throes of this pandemic. You can keep / use this credit through the end of 2021.​

Refund: It is difficult circumstances like this virus outbreak that can often put a huge financial strain on small arts organizations such as Metalwerx. We understand you may be in a similar situation and can issue a full refund to you upon request.

Donation: We have been fortunate to be asked by members of our community how they can help and support us as we wade through these difficult circumstances. If you are someone who wishes to donate your tuition back to Metalwerx, it would mean the world to us. Your generous contribution would not only allow us to continue paying the people that make Metalwerx work, but would provide us with a little financial security as our organization enters the next chapter of this health predicament. Thank you deeply for your consideration.

We are thinking of you and doing everything we can to maintain operations and a sense of normalcy during this pandemic. We are aware that things may change as this situation evolves. We want to encourage you to reach out to us with any questions you may have and we will be in touch with you if anything changes.
