Metal Steel Pumpkins

Let’s make steel pumpkin decorations that don’t rot over time. If you don’t paint them, they just get more orange! Amos will demonstrate how to make a metal pumpkin, and then, attendees of this class will be let loose on the metal shop to make their own permanent decoration. Amos remain at the shop to help class attendees with their pumpkins. A 20′ stick of rebar will be included with the class fee, and the scraps bin at the space is also available.

To attend this class, you should have taken the metal shop introduction class, blacksmithing authorization class, or demonstrate proper metal-working knowledge. The skills exercised in this class will include: cutting, mig welding, grinding, potential for plasma cutting, bending, potential for blacksmithing, and shop clean up!

There will be a fee of $14.96 for current Knox Makers members. Due to the current local COVID situation, the class size is small and members only. If the class fills up too quickly another will be scheduled. There will be a maximum of 6 spots for this class, and a minimum of 2 tickets must be sold. If the class minimum is not met 48 hours prior to class start time, the class will be canceled and all tickets will be refunded. If you are feeling sick in any way morning of the class, contact the instructor for a full refund.
