Event Details


Shop Tools 101=RESCEDULED!!!


Wanna be the next superstar sculptor?  Learn everything you need to get your start in this fun 4 hour class, which SHOULD be a pre-requisite for most Madagascar Institute classes. Jim will teach you the basics of how to effectively prepare materials using our equipment, including bench and angle grinders, drill press, the chop saw, band saw, jig saw, hand tools, measuring tools, etc.  Welders and the plasma cutter will be explained and tried out if there is time. You'll learn to send sparks flying and make ridiculous amount of noise and smoke, and walk away with some shiney object d'art that you made with your own grubby little paws. Oh, and there are safety tips.


We have junky gloves you can borrow, but they don't match and they have holes. You should bring your own. Any type of work gloves will do from cheap home depot gardening gloves to super fancy leather work gloves. Bring eye protection--again, we have some you can borrow but they are dirty and scratched up and you'll want your own.
Sunday May 19th, 11-3pm
