Let’s Make a Metal Flower
In this class, we will be making a flower out of metal!
As posted this class will be 4 hours but may be less or could be more depending on how we progress.
No experience is needed! I will be able to walk anyone through what to do.
We will be welding and creating sparks, so please come with natural fiber clothing such as cotton jeans and T-shirts. Cotton/polyester blend is OK but synthetic clothing or other materials that can melt are unsafe. Make sure you are wearing PANTS that cover you entirely and closed-toed shoes for your protection. If you want to bring something with sleeves you can, if not we have some welding jackets.
You can bring your own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment,) welding shield, and gloves if you have them but these are NOT required as we have setups for everyone to use.
Directions- Knox Makers parking and entrance is located around the back of the SPARK building in the fenced-in area.
