Call for Workshop Instructors

The Society of Midwest Metalsmiths (SMM) is seeking instructors for the 2016 workshop schedule. The guild organizes six to seven workshops each year for it's members. The funds raised from the workshops sponsor the SMM scholarship program.

We are seeking local, regional, and national metals artists who focus on specific techniques that will broaden our memberships metalsmithing skills and knowledge. SMM compensates the artists for their teaching fee, as well as, travel, hotel, and food expenses for the journey to St. Louis, MO. SMM is fortunate to be able to use the metalsmithing studios at Maryville University, St. Louis, or Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Illi-nois for the workshops. Both universities have quality metalsmithing studios that can accommodate most metalsmithing techniques. The SMM workshops are weekends only, 9 to 5 on both Saturday and Sunday dur-ing the months of March through November. Learn more about SMM at http://www.midwest-metalsmiths.org/.
