MAGG Open House Extravaganza

The first week of January was an excellent start to 2023 for the Metal Arts Guild of Georgia (MAGG). We opened our doors and invited the public to come by and check out the metalsmithing and jewelry making classes and workshops we offer. It was so much fun for us to meet all the new people, many of which ended up joining as members and signing up for classes. The fact that we offer open studio time to our members for only $5 an hour was huge attraction.

At MAGG we are fortunate to have so many experienced and talented teachers. Several of them helped with demos this week. Alan Bremer did an extensive enameling demo on Monday. On Tuesday, I did a Metal Clay Jewelry demo. Seeing the many cool creations, you can make with metal clay helped sell out both of our precious metal clay (PMC) classes this winter session. On Wednesday, Dallas Vinson fascinated attendees with jewelry tool demos, and Joseph Dorsey wowed us with his master sawing and piercing techniques. Piper Espey finished the demo week strong by blowing people away with her knowledge and the power of our Bonnie Doon deep draw machine, blanking & silhouette dies, and forming tools on the hydraulic press.

We also got to show off the GEM Lightbox jewelry photography lighting system that was donated to us by Picup Media. Members got to learn how to use this powerful device to take pictures of their own work to share on their social platforms. We are off to a great start and hope to see more new faces join MAGG this year.
