The Metal Arts Guild (MAG) is the member-based organization for silversmiths, jewellers and metal artists in Canada. Since 1946, this non-profit organization has been committed to encouraging the appreciation of Metal Arts through the exchange of information and ideas.

Come to MAG's 2008 Annual General Meeting! Find out what we're planning for the 2008-2009 season. Our AGM 2008 speaker, Jeff de Boer, will talk about "Life on the Outside": his career and his thoughts on contemporary art and craft.

Jeff teaches at the Alberta College of Craft and Design, and has an extraordinary body of inventive, imaginative work – from samurai armour for cats and medieval armour for mice, to 'steam punk'-inspired sculpture and personal objects.

Chasing and Repoussé Workshop with Jeff DeBoer
Our first event of the 2008-09 Program year is a chasing and repoussé workshop, taught by the renowned Calgary-based metalsmith Jeff de Boer. Jeff has an international reputation for his samurai and medieval armour for cats and mice, Jules Verne-inspired 'rocket' lamps and exquisite abstract works.

"While honey bees get most of the credit, a considerable amount of agricultural pollination is performed by wild bees. In Toronto, backyard fruits and vegetables are pollinated mostly by wild bees. So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
