LIKE THOR... the Lord of TOO can harness the power of lightning! Yes, you CAN control the power of arcing electricity, shoot it (like Thor) and melt cold hardened steel into a wee little puddle. Doesn't that sounds cool?! Well actually... IT IS just as exciting as it sounds! Nothing to be afraid of folks! Even my 6 year old kid has done it! DESCRIPTION: During this one day class, students will learn basic metal working skills (including how to weld) then build a small one-of-a-kind sculpture project to take home. DETAILS: Students will be briefed on safety. The instructor will demo use of a manually operated "Plasma" machine which cuts metal like butter. Instructor will then train students on the use of electric grinding and sanding tools. Instructor will demonstrate welding then, with close guidance each Student will get to "mig" weld. Student will then design & build a small project from a selection of scrap metal, and/or using a metal pieces they cut out. Review the gallery of photos for project ideas and happy students! ALL SAFETY GEAR AND SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED TO EACH STUDENT. However, PLEASE wear heavy cotton pants or "jeans", any cotton long sleeved shirt or hoody, leather or canvas closed-toed shoes or boots. Long hair should be braided or in a pony-tail. If you have eye contacts, wear them instead of your glasses. NO ONE has ever been hurt during this class! Despite that, a waiver must be signed prior in order to participate. IF YOU TAKE THIS CLASS, PREPARE TO FEEL EXHILARATED AND CREATIVELY CHARGED! THIS CLASS IS A GUARANTEED STRESS REMOVER! --------- CANCELLATION POLICY: For Refunds, a request to cancel must occur 24 hours prior to scheduled class date otherwise, a "Credit" toward a future date will be granted or it can be gifted.

Response Time:
Twelve years ago I sought a change in careers. During an Apprenticeship with a highly successful metal artist, I was inspired to pursue metal art & fabrication. I then took up Welding classes and upon completion, moved to San Francisco. I gained the most extraordinary experiences working in Bay Area creative fabrication shops, building custom decor, furniture, and large scale art pieces for prominent artists such as Anish Kapoor (Cloud Gate -Chicago). Since 2007, I've worked on many other large scale project at American Steel Studios in Oakland with metal sculptor, Karen Cusolito. While volunteering on numerous Flaming Lotus Girls (SF collective) projects I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and skills with volunteers. This inspired me to share it with individuals outside the artist community and by hosting classes in my own workshop. All my Verlocal students should be aware that their attendance in one of my classes provides the sole funding for the Young Sparks Foundation Apprentice Training Program. A program that provides under served teens an opportunity to learn the metal trades without any cost to them. So thank you for choosing this class and supporting local youth! ~Day
