If you would like to come in and *use* the metal shop outside of this class, you must be a member.

A paid membership doesn't automatically guarantee you'll just get to come and use all our tools. First and foremost, we need to make sure you can demonstrate that you know how to safely use them. We don't want you to injure yourself or anyone else, and also proper training helps prevent damage to our tools.

Not all classes are free for members, but they are always at least discounted. Why is this? Our instructors are experts; some choose to volunteer their time, and some need to earn money for sharing their knowledge and experience because this is how they make their living.

About the Instructor:
Paul Freeman's welding experience started in 2003 when he completed an Association of Diving Contractors International Commercial Diver Certification. He then went on to work in ship-husbandry, oil and gas fields, power plants, salvage, and deep-sea diving. More recently he has been working with artists and craftsman in the iron-works industry for residential and commercial properties. He is also a certified monolithic dome builder and farmer.
