The HammerClub is a loose association of international metal designers and silversmiths. Members have been meeting annually at different locations in Europe, since 2002, for professional exchange. In the past two years, the meeting was held in Pforzheim (2017) and Schwäbisch Gmünd (2016). Copenhagen and Trondheim have also served as venues, before. Alongside an exhibition and the collaborative smithing of a bowl, professional exchange and talks by Rudolf Bott (D), David Huycke (B), Michael Rowe (GB), and others, are at the centre of the HammerClub meeting. This year's meeting is scheduled from May 4th to 6th, in Hanau. Events are held in the Staatliche Zeichenakademie, the Marienkirche, as well as the German Goldsmiths' House.
