Make a Flower; Aka Date Night

Screen Shot 2019-04-13 at 4.15.46 PM

In this 2.5 hour class we will provide you with variety of pre-cut pieces which you may fashion into a flower of any type. We will also provide some scrap if you want to color outside the lines.

You could make a rose, a poppy, a chrysanthemum, a Mt Shasta Daisy, an Aster, or a flower of your own creation that doubles as the worlds’ prettiest self defense tool.

You will be shown basic MIG (GMAW or wire-feed welding) techniques and cold-metal forming techniques that are useful in auto body repair, armor making, and for non perishable bouquets. Basically we will show you how to cold smith metal, which is more or less beating on it, but it is actually a skill and one which can be practiced with great delicacy, although, usually, it is not.

This is a project oriented class, it is focused on specific techniques. Please select a MIG welding intensive if your goal is specifically to learn welding.

You are likely to be surprised by how easily and how well you can form metal with very simple tools.

This is a great class for kids, and they can work with you for the same price, or on their own under a separate ticket purchase.

As always we ask that you wear shop appropriate footgear. No sneakers please. We provide all other materials and tools required for the class.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any class which is under enrolled. We refund any class which we cancel. Clients will be refunded in full for any class cancelled two weeks in advance. We do not re-schedule.


We transfer expertise from professional to enthusiast. We offer team-building exercises, welding and sculptural classes. We teach every conventional type of welding and computer numeric control of plasma cutting equipment. We can also teach fabrication, metal casting, and basic machine tool operation.

Rusty Is Radical. Great experience, great instructor! Metalwork is a lot like having super-powers! This five hour MIG welding class is designed to familiarize you with the required equipment and establish your confidence so you feel comfortable welding on your own. You will be introduced to different machines and can expect to walk out of the class ready to weld safely and independently. The workshop fee includes all shop materials and equipment; just show up.
