Please note that the 2013 Lecture Series will be held in Room 109 of Otto Miller Hall.
During the coldest months of winter the Seattle Metals Guild produces and hosts a series of lectures, once a month over the course of four months, January thru April. Held the second Thursday of the month, at Otto Miller Hall on the campus of SPU, these lectures are free to SMG members. The Lecture Series organizer attempts to present a diverse selection of local metalsmiths and business owners with a range of experience and knowledge to inspire and educate our membership. Presenters have included jewelers, metalsmiths, world travelers and collectors, welders, sign makers, knife makers, cad-cam specialists, and a man who makes armor for the movies! It is a great opportunity to learn and socialize.
