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!
