  • Join us in the MetalShop at The Foundry to design your own decorative hook. This simple structure takes new form as you turn a favorite shape or figure into a useful piece for securely placing two robes, a coat, your bags, the dog’s leash, some cables (etc. or etc). This class will guide you through safely using the plasma arc to cut your metal designs, tools for bending and shaping steel rod, and the METAL INERT GAS (MIG) welder to join your elements as one. Work with a small group to get a strong introduction to basic metal shop tools and to crafting your own creations in steel.

    Must be 18+
    Class Size: Min 3/Max 6

    Please wear close-toed leather shoes (no flip-flops please) and comfortable older clothing made from cotton when you come to work in our shop!
