Metalwerx works! Regional, national, and international instructors, students, and studiomates alike benefit from one of the most fully equipped and dynamic schools and studios in the country.

We are a unique metalsmithing school for teaching and learning comprised of students—novices to masters—from around the world, teachers from around the world, and in-house studiomates, as well, with the primary core of artists, students, instructors, patrons, donors, art lovers, and volunteers from the Boston and New England region. 

Since its inception, Metalwerx has gradually and deliberatively grown into an amazingly dynamic entity operating at full capacity. As with most successful organizations, continued evolution and building upon what works, is essential for continued success.

In order to add enrichments, provide enhancements, additional curricula, and structural growth, additional layers of funding are necessary. Your contribution is tax deductible and build a stronger future for Metalwerx.

Funding promotes the continuation of regular scholarships, a dynamic curriculum with world-class instructors and visiting artists, and allows us to keep current of cutting edge technologies and provide top-notch equipment to students for the development of their skill-set.

We are grateful for, and rely on every creative individual who joins us, no matter the role. Everyone contributes in their own special way, and we are always happy to welcome a new face.  If you want to get involved or give back, there are many ways to contribute. To speak with someone directly about any of these opportunities, please feel free to contact our office staff.
