Metal Monkeys are a not for profit organisation dedicated to developing the arts practice of its’ members and sharing this practice with the community. The group was established with setting up a transportable iron foundry in 2008 for creating fine art cast Iron.

Our primary approach is person centred; each person is treated as an individual, with individual needs and interests.

We see our task as artists to facilitate a creative process that enables self-expression and reflection, discovering new things to contribute to individuals, groups and organisations.
