Next Class

Metalsmithing meets every Monday and Thursday from 5p – 9p in the Metalsmithing Shop in the new HGMS Education Center, 7901 Bailey Cove Road SE, Huntsville.  (Please enter the South parking lot from Bailey Cove Road SE, and enter the building through the double glass doors.)  We offer a class the first Thursday of the month.  Monday nights and the other Thursday nights are open so you can work on individual projects.

Participation in metalsmithing classes requires certification.  As always, on nights that we do not have an official project class scheduled, anyone who is certified is invited to join us to work on your projects.  Instructors are available for “one on one” instruction and help on individual projects on work session nights.  Anyone who missed a particular project we have had in the past and would like to work on that project, please notify Shelley or me and we will provide you with the kit and instructions and any special tools so you can work on it during our work session nights.  Please let us know in advance if the project you want to work on requires special tools or equipment that we need to bring from home so we can have them available.

Certification Classes:  The next certification class has been tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, July 16th.  To get on the list for the class, please send your name and contact information (name, email address, and cell phone number (for text messages) to  Seats will
