Studio Use Training & MOS Certification



If you are not MOS certified and want to be,  you must take this workshop!  But if you are already certified and want a “refresher” on the studio use you can take it as well..

To use the BMAG studio it is required you pass a simple quiz on the basics of tool use, metalsmithing, and safety.  During the workshop you will have the opportunity to acquire all of the knowledge you need to pass.  

Upon successfully passing  the certification you will receive two(2) coupons for A+MOS (Assisted Members Open Studio) access which are equivalent to the cost of this workshop. 
See more details and workshop outline below.
