JUST LIKE THOR...You will harness the power of lightning at your fingertips! BASIC DESCRIPTION: This is a very unique one day class. Students will learn basic metal working skills then build a one-of-a-kind sculpture project to take home. There's no other class like it in the U.S.A. (that I am aware of). DETAILS: Students will first be briefed on safety. Students will learn to use a "Plasma" cutter, a machine which cuts metal like butter. Next, students learn use of grinding and sanding tools. Next, students will be taught basic MIG (wire feed) welding skills. The class takes 30 min snack break on site. Using a selection of old gears, pipe, springs, and other interesting scrap metal pieces students will then be guiding in the design and creation of a small metal sculpture. [Training Time 3 hrs, Creative Time 3.5 hrs] ALL SAFETY GEAR AND SUPPLIES WILL BE PROVIDED TO EACH STUDENT. NO ONE has ever been hurt during this class! It's exciting and much easier than you think! ***NOTE*** Don't hesitate to request a day or time which may not show as available. I am often flexible and can add or switch a date to accommodate your needs. Also, if you missed the 12 hour cut-off time to book a date then, try to contact me anyway via AirBnB Experiences. I often check messages a couple of hours prior to the start time. I can easily add you if I have an open seat. ~Day
Hello. My name is Day. I'm a Metal Artist. Over the past 12 years, I've worked on numerous large-scale interactive metal sculptures. Most of which were designed for the Burning Man Festival then later installed in the Bay Area (NorCal). I'm a member of the San Francisco collective known as the Flaming Lotus Girls. I've worked with world renowned artists such as Anish Kapoor and Brad Howe. More recently, I assisted in building a "Shark" Sculpture for Facebook and a private "Art Car" for the owners of Google. In my spare time, I mentor teens in an Apprentice Program with the YoungSparksFoundation.org. Personally, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to offer folks an experience which may not otherwise be available to them. My goal is to have students gain comfort in tapping into the creative side of their brain and share it with others.
Cheeses, cold cuts, veggies, healthy dips w gluten-free crackers; water and lemonade (no soda) are provided. However, you may…
all safety gear and all metal supplies needed to build the art projects will be provided. Bring only your desire to "Make"!
My workshop is in a warehouse where many large-scale projects have been built and are currently being built right now! During your visit, I can offer you a brief history of the art spawned from the local art community and if lucky we'll get to view art "in progress" that day! The building season for Burning Man art cars and projects is from March until end of August, every year! Join my class, learn a new skill while supporting local artists!
