Brooklyn Metal Works is a shared metalsmithing studio for professional artists. Membership is required to access studio time and is contingent on prior metalsmithing training. If you are a jeweler or metalsmith who has the necessary experience and education to work safely and independently, BKMW membership is right for you.
Membership is $100 per year. This fee goes towards the purchase of materials for general studio use, as well as for the maintenance and repair of tools and equipment. Our members also receive discounts on classes, workshops and events.
All levels of studio use are available to members of Brooklyn Metal Works. By becoming a member you will be able to access studio and locker space, have the opportunity to show work in our yearly membership exhibition, and enjoy discounts from select vendors.
This application helps us to determine whether the work you are interested in making - i.e. fine jewelry, silver art objects or large scale sculpture - is appropriate for our space. It also ensures that those who work in the studio have been trained to do so, for the safety of everyone.
Once we have reviewed your application we will contact you via email about your membership.
