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.

1. Tell us a little about your school or program. When did it start? What format do you use (online/in person)? How many students per class?

I started teaching jewelry-making part-time in the late 70’s in Adult Education at the College of Marin (my father also taught art there for 25 years), and after returning from a two year stint in Germany, where I learned granulation, I taught once or twice a year at the Revere Academy until Alan closed it down. My wife and partner, Lynn, and I started online classes in fabrication and bezel setting just before the pandemic started.

We also recently built a beautiful workshop on our 23 acres in rural Washington state, where I hold five day workshops teaching my 18k granulation, fusing and fabrication techniques to classes of 6 students at a time.
