Learn how to work with metal, or build on your metal-working skills! You'll use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make pieces of art to take home, like a steel minion, an animal, or whatever you dream up. 

In this three-week 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.

If you've taken welding classes at BARN in the past, this is a chance to get more hands-on time with the equipment and to refine your skills. 

Get ready to make some sparks fly!
