Harness the power of lightning! Just like THOR, the God of Thunder (and Lightning) you too can control the arcing power of electricity, direct it, aim it, and melt cold hardened steel into a wimpy little puddle. Sounds pretty cool, right? Well, actually IT IS just as exciting as it sounds! If you are interested in taking on this experience or possibly "gifting" it to someone then, read on to understand what this 4-hour class entails. Students will be briefed on safe behavior in an industrial work space environment. Instructor will demo proper use of a manual Plasma Cutting Machine. Using the Plasma Cutting Machine, Students can manually cut any design or shapes out of metal sheet. Shapes which they can either keep as they were cut or include in part of their final project. Next, Instructor will train students on use of metal shop electrical tools, such as an Angle Grinder, and other sanding machines; these tools are most often used in cleaning and shaping metal for fabrication and sculptures. Students will closely watch the Instructor demonstrate welding then, under the Instructor's guidance, each Student will practice welding themselves. Using their new skills, each Student will then build a 6 to 12 inch sculpture from a selection of scrap metal, or using a metal piece they cut out themselves. Upon completion, Students will take their fabulous art project home!** ALL SAFETY GEAR AND SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED. HOWEVER, you must wear heavy cotton or denim pants, cotton long sleeved shirt, Leather or canvas closed-toed shoes, with ankles covered. Long hair should be braided or in a pony-tail. PLEASE, DO NOT WEAR POLYESTER OR SYNTHETIC CLOTHING. ALSO, WEAR CONTACT LENS IF YOU HAVE THEM. Prepare to get dirty but, most of all, to have fun! NOTE: A waiver must be signed prior to participation. Email or text me if you have any questions. MORE DETAILS WILL BE EMAILED IMMEDIATELY AFTER A SEAT IS RESERVED. **ADDITIONAL NOTE: On rare occasions, a sculpture project may end up requiring more time than can be completed within the 5 hour max. I offer additional class visits at the rate of $75 per session (4 more hours). If you're one not to rush or you already have in mind something unique that you'd like to build, I will make an exception and permit you (as a beginner) to sign up for the "Intermediate Level" class @3 visits to ensure your desired piece will get finished. That next level class offers a savings of $50. CANCELLATION POLICY: For Refunds, a request to cancel must occur 2 full days prior to scheduled class date otherwise, a "Credit" toward a future class date will be granted. If NO request for cancellation is received before 2 hours prior to start time on date of class then, NO REFUND and NO CREDIT will be granted. Sorry. This class is located: West Oakland, CA

About

Only twelve years ago, while seeking a change in careers, I found new inspiration after working with a successful Los Angeles metal artist, Brad Howe. Inspired by Brad's life, I completed Welding classes and then moved to the Bay Area to pursue my dream of becoming metal sculptor myself. I gained tremendous experience in Bay Area custom fabrication shops, building architecture, furniture, and even large scale art pieces by prominent artists such as Anish Kapoor. Since 2007, I've worked off and on at American Steel Studios in Oakland with metal sculptor, Karen Cusolito. I have been a member of the locally infamous Flaming Lotus Girls artist collective since 2008. Sculptures designed and built by the FLG are interactive, usually huge, and always incorporate both fire & lighting effects. Although almost every FLG project was built for installation at the Burning Man Festival, many pieces have since traveled across the globe for various other cultural events and music festivals. My time volunteering with the FLG collective inspired me to share my knowledge as a metal artist and begin hosting classes. Obtaining the power to manipulate such an incredible element is a tremendous thrill that drives my desire to share that experience with all my students. I promise... you WILL love this class! It's important that my students are aware that 50% of the profit from all the classes I host provide funding for an Art Apprentice Program, which is managed by me, as the Young Sparks Foundation. org So, not only will you be taking home a new personal skill but, you'll be providing an opportunity for disadvantaged youth to succeed in life, as well. Thank you for choosing this class and helping the community! ~Day
