Put the pedal to the metal at the MAH for a three-day event showcasing an array of different techniques, methods and forms working with the medium of metal. We are excited to share a wide range of metal working methods including blacksmithing, junk metal art, jewelry crafting, wire art, and welding through a variety of workshops and demonstrations. Explore the art of metal throughout this weekend-long event. Be sure to check out the hot rods, motorcycles, and art bikes too!

Get inspired Friday night experiencing the progressive technical metal music by local band, G.U.M., and a video dance performance by Pierre Riche. Be sure to check out the blacksmithing demonstrations by Kirk McNeill and then test out your own metal techniques in a variety of free drop-in metal art workshops for all ages making robots, nail art and tin lanterns.

Saturday and Sunday will feature all day demonstrations in an assortment of metal craft techniques, as well as opportunities for artist-led workshops with the chance to take home your own metal handiwork. Each day will showcase different artists and techniques. In the Atrium, visitors will have the opportunity to add to our giant collaborative metallic robot creation.

Enjoy a one-week only metal art exhibition in the atrium that will showcase work by all the metal artists involved in the event. Come to the MAH this weekend to link, twist, weld and fuse together a metallically monumental experience!
