The Bellingham Metal Arts Guild (BMAG) is a 100% volunteer administered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Without the help of many, many members we would not exist as an organization nor pay the rent and other costs to have a studio where our members can practice the metal arts or take classes. Our classes and workshops are delivered by paid instructors that take a percentage of the class fee, with some exceptions were instructors or workshop facilitators provide their services on a volunteer basis. The revenues from classes are the primary source of funds for BMAG with membership dues second. Fees for members studio use is at approximate cost. Without the work of many administrative volunteers those classes would never take place.
