The Metal Arts Guild (MAG) is an independent, non-profit, educational organization
of people who are skilled, interested, or share in the production and exhibition of metals.

Our Community


Everyone is welcome to join: from the beginner to the master craftsperson, teachers and students, metal arts collectors and more. Each member is a vital part of making the Guild work for our community.


We support the work of outstanding metal artists by organizing exhibitions, lectures, and workshops, awarding an annual MAG Community Project Grant, various student scholarships, and offering resources and opportunities for our members.


MAG is a 501(c 3) non-profit, all-volunteer-led arts organization, and we rely on your generosity to help us provide metal related events, lectures, workshops, exhibitions and networking mixers to the membership and community.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I moved to California a couple of years ago, from Africa. I’m originally from Canada but have lived in the US off and on for many years. I came to metalwork and jewelry quite recently, beginning just two years ago at the Revere Academy in San Francisco. After a long and varied career I’m finally doing what I love – working with my hands, being creative and being my own boss. I love working in my studio where I can spend all day with my two dogs who are the joy of my life!
