Scrap Metal Art
Learn to make metal sculptures from recycled metal scrap!
No experience necessary- just use your imagination.
We will begin by covering shop safety and go over some tool basics. After a bit of discussion about scrap materials the class will design and create their own small sculptures to take home.
If you have some scrap material you would like to use, please get in touch with me prior to the class so we can discuss your vision on Mattermost or at firstname.lastname@example.org The metal shop has all the equipment required but you are always welcome to bring your own PPE and welding shield.
Please wear natural fiber clothes such as jeans, cotton shirts, etc. NO acrylics, spandex or “tech” style clothing. Socks and closed toed shoes are also required.
