Join AMCAW Today

Join our international community of metal clay artists and help shape the future of metal clay!

Your member benefits include access to our members-only content in the learning center, access to the members-only Facebook group, and member pricing on AMCAW conferences and publications.

Members also get instant access to our tutorial collections and the opportunity to show your work to a broader audience in members-only challenges.

If you join as an instructor, you’ll also get a listing in our searchable instructor directory, and you’ll be able to list your classes and workshops in our online calendar or anytime class directory. These benefits help connect you and your class offerings with potential students from across town or across the globe.

Members are also invited to join a committee, which gives you the opportunity to work closely with, and get to know, leading metal clay artists from many different countries.

Additional benefits will be added as AMCAW develops new ways to inspire, engage, and support you.

This organization is funded primarily by passionate and dedicated members like you who are committed to seeing AMCAW succeed in service of the metal clay community.
