Learn how to work with metal this summer, or build on your metal-working skills! You'll use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make a 'pet' to take home - a dog, cat, bunny, turtle, or whatever you dream up.
In this four-day class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then you will learn how to use all the tools you'll need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.
Next it's time for you to practice your skills and make your own unique creations with old silverware and other scrap metal parts that have been collected.
This is a great chance to have fun and learn some new skills this summer!
Participants must wear natural fiber clothing, long pants, closed-toe shoes (natural fiber or leather), no stretch fabrics, and long hair tied back. This is a strictly enforced safety policy. Thank you!
Instructor: Bob Mathisrud. Bob was cross-trained in many trades as a stationary operating engineer, for over 20 years, at national food baking companies.
