Our Mission

Metals Guild hopes to bring a more tangible and interactive art experience to the CFCC student community, a goal achieved by enrichment opportunities outside the scope of the Metals classroom, and extending the metal working experience from the confines of the classroom to our local community. Metals Guild will encourage members to participate in fundraising and community outreach events such as demonstrations and hands on short workshops. These events will be empowering to its members and spread enthusiasm for craftsmanship, as well as bring an awareness to the art of metalsmithing to aspiring and active participants in the community.

Ken Bova's Visit to CFCC

We here at CFCC were SO lucky to have nationally renowned metalsmith Ken Bova come down from ECU to give us a day workshop! Ken demonstrated making your own tools and especially making riveting hammer's from nails and chopsticks! He had all sorts of tricks up his sleeves. We all learned so much and were really enthralled. I think everyone agreed we could listen to Ken lecture for hours! Ken will be back in the Spring semester and we will try to get the school to let us use the room for two days.

Take a look at some of Ken's handmade tools!
