About the Guild

MBMAG celebrates the pursuit of fine metalworking.

Our community of beginners, emerging artists, as well as world-class metal artists welcomes everyone who wishes to join the Guild. Learn the ancient and modern techniques that produce art from metal.  

Instruction, lectures, hands-on demonstrations, workshops, collaborations with other metal guilds and schools and colleges, community outreach, and more. —These are only some of the ways that MBMAG aspires to nurture the art of metalworking in the wider public.

The guild has members from all across California in 13 counties: Santa Cruz County, San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, Monterey County, San Luis Obispo County, Santa Barbara County, Nevada County, Calaveras County, Merced County, El Dorado County, Alameda County, Sonoma County and Los Angeles County. We have members in seven states including Washington, New Jersey, Arizona, Missouri, Colorado and Nevada. With our virtual seminars and recordings available to members, such as our Social Media Skills for Artists and Photography for Metal Art Series, we strive to provide benefits for all members regardless of city, county, state or country.
