About The Event
The pandemic of 2020/2021 presented many challenges to our metalsmithing community and that includes holding in-person conferences. For 2021, CoMA decided to offer an on-line format rather than take a risk with an in-person event as NOT having a major annual event was not an option. We are thrilled to host our first virtual Symposium, RAISE THE BAR, in July 2021. The Symposium Committee has been working hard for several months to put together an eclectic and dynamic group of presenters who represent various aspects of our industry. They are educators and innovators world reknown for their artistry and skill. We look forward to welcoming you on this adventure and anticipate you will be inspired in your own metalsmith journey.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TIMES GIVEN ARE MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT TIME (MDT).
All ticket holders, no matter when purchased, will have access to recordings of the presentations, demos and Master Panel a few days after the event, for four weeks.
