If you like machines, sparks, fire and making strong and inexpensive things that last, then this workshop is for you. It will explore industrial steel as a material in sculpture. Students will learn and experiment with the technical and artistic uses of steel, including welding, basic forging, hot bending and cold working techniques. You will use a variety of manual and power tools to shape, connect, grind and finish steel. Participants with an interest in sculpture, furniture making, industrial design, blacksmithing, or automotive crafts will leave class having made large scale, durable and inexpensive structures. Open to all skill levels.
