Tim McCrieght WorkshopWhen it comes to education, the Seattle Metals Guild gets it. The Guild is dedicated to providing an array of opportunities to explore the new, reinforce the fundamentals, and expand horizons.

How? Through our annual NW Jewelry and Metals Symposium, our winter Lecture Series, numerous Workshops (technical and business focused), and of course, the Guild’s Library.

We offer something for everyone – traditional and contemporary jewelry and metal arts fans alike. And we aim to make these opportunities affordable.


The Seattle Metals Guild understands how important it is to reach beyond the borders of our membership and interact with those outside of our organization. Community Outreach is part of our mission. It’s what keeps us vital and involved, helps expand our field and contributes to society. Four main programs comprise our Outreach Program.

Women's Shelter Jewelry ProjectPassing the Torch, a statewide jewelry and metals arts competition and exhibition for high school students, ensures the continuity and longevity of our field by extending a hand to the next generation and showcasing their work. Exhibitions are a key link in the chain between makers and the greater community involving, educating and exciting the public about our field and providing a platform for members to see and share work. The Women’s Shelter Jewelry Project allows members to directly help others by using their skills to redesign and repurpose donated and no longer used jewelry and put it in the hands of those most in need.
