CMA will be offering one six month intern position in 2022. Interns will be required to work 32 hours a week helping with CMA activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, toolmaking, workshop prep, occasional commission jobs, and restoration activities in the historic Blacksmith Shop. Interns will receive housing for the duration of their internship as well as have studio access on weekends and after operation hours. The internship position is a rigorous position, which requires long days and occasional nights during the Forging Focus, but provides invaluable professional development as you work along side our talented instructors. Interns will assist in all workshops  during their stay. They will also be allowed to audit all week-long workshops, while assisting the instructors. Included in the interns stay is our six-week long Forging Focus.
