MCAS features 13 nationally-known artists presenting more than 20 workshops, a panel discussion and breakout sessions, a month-long metal clay exhibit, and more.

This North American program, produced in partnership with Mitsubishi Materials Trading Corporation, Rio Grande Jewelry Supply and Sawtooth School trains artisans and instructors in the use of PMC brand silver clays. Held at various venues throughout the USA, courses are taught by artists who’ve become certified through Camp PMC. Since its introduction in July, Camp PMC courses have certified more than 25 instructors across the US. Details about Camp PMC are here:
