Metalworks Without Welding
Continuing Education Course
Metalworking doesn’t have to mean working with sparks and flames. In fact, there are multiple tools and techniques to work with metals that require a range of skills, which involve neither welding or flame work. This course is suited for the beginning student interested in metalworking, or the experienced metal artists who would like to add new techniques to their vocabulary. Several small, individually designed projects will be completed using hand tools (hacksaw, file, punch, stamp, riveter, tap, hammer), small power tools (hand drill, jigsaw, reciprocal saw, sander) and larger equipment (bender, brake, roller, jump shear, CNC machines). The focus will be on using steel; other metals can be used with the instructor’s permission.
NOTE: The studio fee includes safety equipment, hand tools, drill bits, saw blades, abrasives, compressed air, lubricants and access to the metal workshop outside of class time, based on facility availability. All other materials must be purchased by the student.
