About Us

about us

The Vancouver Metal Arts Association (VMAA) is a community of metalsmiths, jewellers, blacksmiths, sculptors, mixed-media artists, enamelists, and others who work with metal or have an interest in jewellery design and metal arts.


VMAA was established as a non-profit society in British Columbia in 2012 with the purpose of offering a forum for metalsmiths, jewellers and designers to exchange ideas and technical information, organize exhibitions of jewellery art, and increase public awareness of metal arts.

Each member of VMAA decides what their level of involvement will be. Dues are collected to cover modest administrative costs.
