Local Metal Clay Groups
This page contains links to the websites of local metal clay groups around the world. Some of these meet occasionally for show and tell, general networking and sharing. Others meet on a regular basis and organise metal clay workshops and talks especially for their members. Some of the groups on this page have websites so there are links to them. If they don't have a website, there is contact information for the group.
If you run a metal clay group for your local community, let us know using the contact page.
