metal Studio

In our metal studio, we make sculptures, boxes, curtain hooks, paperweights, candelabras, and more—and we teach you how to make them, too . We offer several introductory classes to welding, and students who complete intermediate classes have access to an experienced welders work night. Every student that takes a class leaves with their own work.
