Do you like playing with fire? Do you like playing with metal? Do like having the opportunity To maybe see someone light themselves on fire while teaching you? If you answered yes to any of these then come to the i3 Detroit Casting Workshop. There you will learn the basics of how to melt down metal and turn it into something completely of your own design. The techniques that will be taught are simply and easy enough that you will be able to do it in your own garage once you've finished the class. Instructions will be given by local metalworker and blacksmith, Alex Drummer who is currently working towards his Master Degree in Metalsmithing. If you're not sure this is anything you would want to do come on down anyway and learn some interesting facts from the instructor and make up your mind later if you want to make something. Just remember to think of the material and class fee as a cover charge instead of a fee because there is always a good chance to see someone set themselves on fire for your entertainment.
Please RSVP for class on the eventbrite to ensure there is enough supplies for everyone.
Please bring cash to the class to pay for materials and if you would like to make a donation.
When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective in Ferndale, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The name stands for "Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire".
Supported by its members but open to guests as well, i3 Detroit's facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible. Led by volunteer instructors (mostly members), these are usually free, but may require a materials fee for participation.
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, programming, woodworking, or just hanging out.
Founded in 2009, i3 Detroit has about 70 members and funds its operation mostly through member dues. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
