Eliminate the fear factor! Learn to weld from a master - Lisa Nigro, creator of the 110' Draka the Dragon.  During this 4-hour workshop participants will receive instruction in the use of a MIG (wire-feed) welding machine and other metal fabrication tools, techniques, and equipment; i.e. grinders, chop saw, etc. You will have time to practice and can create your own art piece from steel and found metal (provided).  You may also choose to add a door or pipes to your previously made burn barrel.  You are welcome to use our steel and found objects or bring your own steel or found objects that inspire you to create.

This class is limited to ensure personalized instruction and practice time, and can safely operate each piece of equipment. All safety equipment and materials are provided. Upon completion of this course, students are welcome to practice and create during our regularly scheduled studio sessions.

The admission for this 4-hour workshop includes all materials and safety equipment.
