ATTENTION:
ONE additional person can be added upon request by an existing student. [Max 3]

DESCRIPTION:
Students will learn metal working skills then build a one-of-a-kind art piece. There's no other class like this in the U.S.A.!

LIKE THOR, the God of Thunder, you will harness the power of lightning! Using a "Plasma" machine you will cut through metal like butter! You will use your god-like power to sand and grind the metal (using electrical tools) until it's smooth. After a brief rest, [yes Gods must rest] you will implement your superior hearing to attain knowledge about the "MIG" welding machine. You will then explore the coffers of scrap metal such as old gears, pipe, springs, nuts/bolts, horseshoes, railroad spikes, and motorcycle guts and select bits for your project. Your final task on this journey requires you to tap into your creative side to conceive and ... what once was rusty junk...in..to..a.. majestic family heirloom!
Upon completion of this training, not only will you gain tremendous admiration for the new skills you now possess BUT, you will also champion the title of... "ARTIST!"

ALL SAFETY GEAR WILL BE PROVIDED.
* * * NOTICE * * *
This "Experience" will be placed on an indefinite hold after March 1, 2022 due to the sale of the warehouse. 150 total fabrication businesses must move out. Check back in the summer 2022.

Day is my nickname. Over the past 12 years as a Metal Artist I've worked on many large-scale interactive metal sculptures. Most of which were designed for the Burning Man Festival and then later installed around the San Francisco/Bay area. I've worked with world renowned artists such as Anish Kapoor and Brad Howe. I assisted in building a sculpture for the Facebook campus and a personal "Art Car" for the owners of Google. In my spare time, I mentor teens at an Apprentice Program for Young Sparks Foundation (.org). I am thrilled to have the opportunity to offer a unique learning experience to people which might not otherwise available to them. My goal is to have students tap into their creativity, build an art piece they love then leave the studio with a valuable set of skills and a burning desire to "MAKE MORE ART! :)

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!
[UPDATE: Covid lockdown has halted most local art projects].

We had a great time at Day's workshop, using the plasma machine, grinder, sander, and welding. The workshop is a fairly small space within a large warehouse where you will be working closely with Day. She was great at explaining techniques for using each piece of equipment. We ended the day with some fun/quirky art pieces.

This experience was a birthday gift for my sixteen year old son. Finding a gift for a teenager can be a challenge; however, this experience was a grand slam! My son said this was one of his top three experiences ever! Day is an amazing teacher and she definitely made the experience extra special with her warmth, patience, and passion for welding. If you ever thought about trying to weld, I highly recommend this experience with Day!

This Metal Sculpture Class was a truly singular, fantastic experience. Day is an engaging & skilled teacher with mastery at the intersection of art and science—her gift to us was both to demystify metalwork and to empower with the basic skills of the craft. We look forward to Metal Sculpture class 201!

Excellent experience! My boyfriend and I made metal sculptures and really enjoyed it. Learned a lot, used several tools for the first time. Day is very accommodating and gives clear instructions.

Awesome visit! Day took the time to really help us with our projects and made sure we learned everything. We did go a couple hours over the expected end time, but she never made us feel rushed and still made our projects come to fruition. Great value and I really feel like we learned a lot from our experience and I hope to apply the skills I learned in the future! Highly recommend this class for metal workers of any skill levels.
