what you'll learn
We believe in peoples' inherent ability to create. Some act on that with little effort, others grow up believing that the roles of artist or designer are reserved only to those to whom it comes naturally. Fire brings light to new places. It sparks imagination and releases hidden abilities from the shadows. Step into that light and see what you find. We think you'll like what you discover...
In the One Day Workshop we will be working with both metal and wood. Through fundamental techniques on the drillpress, chopsaw and MIG welder we are able to create something that is industrial, yet minimal and sleek at the same time.
What You'll Make - The Industrial Stem
We will each create our own unique Industrial Stem. A single stem flower vase that is a simple but elegant design. You will have options on a number of elements to make it uniquely yours, while still learning the techniques and tools to get it done.
No prior shop experience is necessary, but attention and patience are required to complete it in our day together.
Roll up your sleeves!
Never used industrial power tools? No problem. We got you! By the end of the day with us, you'll be ready and anxious for more! A long-time power tool head? Put that experience to work testing your creative spirit.
Drillpress: Early presses appeared in metal shops over 200 years ago. Today's models are core to the work of metal sculptors and fabricators.
Bandsaw: Smoothly cutting through solid steel, these beautiful machines are a joy to watch in action.
MIG Welder: Technology has come a long way. With a little practice and a cool welding helmet, you'll "run a bead" and be able to say you learned how to weld.
Metal Grinder: The loudest tool of the day, this handheld workhorse will smooth out welds and get you closer to a finished piece of art.
Belt Sander: Soften those rough edges and get your design work ready to show off back home!
