Event Details

Class Description:

This is a class specifically geared to introduce women to the wonderful world of metalworking and welding in order to explore a feminine touch in a traditionally masculine medium. Students will learn how to use a MIG welder and various supporting tools (clamps, grinders, sanders, etc.) to produce sculptural art pieces of their own design.

Purchasing admission to this class also admits students to the Artisan's Asylum Metalworking theme night (Saturdays, 5 PM-10 PM), where students will be able to practice their newfound skils with experienced instructors on-hand to answer questions and help students with projects.

Class Goals:

The goals of this class will be to encourage students to think of metalworking as a new and expansive creative outlet, and to train students to the point where they can weld on Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Prerequisites:

None.

Materials:

Students will bring a flannel shirt, leather gloves and safety glasses to class. Students will purchase raw materials from the instructor as needed for their projects.
