Show Your Metal: Jewellery Workshops

Calling metal and music fans to participate in jewellery making workshops

An elaborate brooch featuring a skull and a quote from Macbeth.

Macbeth Brooch by Dauvit Alexander

You will make a piece of jewellery with Jewellery Quarter based artist Dauvit Alexander, inspired by and reflecting Metal music and culture. Learn and get hands on with traditional jewellery techniques including soldering, casting, cutting and forming metal. No previous experience needed, just a passion for heavy metal and a willingness to have a go. Only 12 places available, first come first served basis.

The workshops will take place every Wednesday, 5.45pm – 7.45pm, over a period of 5 weeks, beginning Wednesday 15th May and finishing on Wednesday 12th June.

This project is free to take part in, with a £5 donation towards purchase of precious metal to work with. All work made will be yours to keep, but will first be exhibited at MAC in our exhibition ‘Show Your Metal’.

Home of Metal

The Show Your Metal exhibition is curated in conjunction with Home of Metal.

Home of Metal’s exhibitions and events join the dots between music, social history, visual art and fan cultures to produce a new perspective on Heavy Metal. One that is celebratory, eschews notions of high/low art and joins audiences and performers together. Home of Metal is devoted to the music that was born in and around Birmingham. Music that turned up the volume, down-tuned guitars, and introduced a whole new meaning to the word ‘heavy’.
