About the event

Come practice your mad welding skills ( or if it’s been a while and you're a little rusty. no problem!) make some awesome metal yard art or rustic home decor with Dustin Swiers!

Here's the game plan:

-sign up for a ticket- (4 Students Max)

Ticket pays for your place in the class, tool, materials and instruction.

PLEASE Register and Purchase Tickets well before class starts (No Later than 2PM the day of class, this is important so the instructor can have enough supplies prepped ) Walk-In tickets will be an additional $10

- Safety comes first so wear your Welders Best which is: closed toe shoes, work clothes that can get dirty or singed preferably jeans and a long sleeve 100% cotton shirt (synthetic fabrics can be flammable) and your hair up.

- When you get here, choose one of our pre-cut metal signs or sculptural project

-quick over view of safety and welding technique

- learn how to deburr and prep steal

- make your sign functional by welding on a post, stand or hangers ( couple ideas for displaying your sign- garden post, mailbox hanging sign, wall mounted sign )

The signs pictured here are only a couple examples of your options that we have currently available. However options are subject change over time based on popularity and demand. If you have preferences or questions about specific sign availability feel free to call us here at the Makerspace to learn more.
