New England School Of Metalwork
7 Albiston Way
Auburn, Maine 04210

The New England School of Metalwork is a full 501 C3 non-profit educational facility devoted to the promotion and strengthening of metalworking skills. Located in beautiful Auburn, Maine, the concept of the school was developed by Maine Oxy and Dereck Glaser, a local artisan metalsmith. After several years of individuals inquiring about ornamental and artistic metalworking instruction the decision was made to build the school. We set to the task of designing and planning a metalworking studio/lab with forging, blacksmithing, metal sculpture and welding technologies as the main source of inspiration. Plans were drawn, budgets were established and away we went to building the school.
