Spending a warm night sitting around a fire is a Steel Yard tradition, and this summer is the perfect time to get into the shop, learn to weld, and build yourself an outdoor fire pit! In the first part of this 8-week course, students will learn basic welding and fabrication techniques. In the remainder of the course, they will apply these techniques to construct their own fire pit, perfect for the front yard, back yard, or patio. Students will tackle technical and aesthetic design details and carefully consider the fire pit’s location and the ways they would like to use it. For the last class, students will take their new constructions out of the shop and into our yard for a group firing (bring your own s’mores fixings!). This course is open to all levels. Steel will be provided for practice and fire pits, but students may need to pay for additional materials to fit their specific designs.

Instructor Info: Luke Montes:
Luke Montes came to Providence by way of San Diego, California. He began at the Steel Yard as a job training participant in our signature Weld to Work program, and has since worked as a welder/fabricator at Old Bristol Line Fabrication and in the Steel Yard’s Public Project department. Luke has come full circle to serve as Weld to Work’s lead instructor along with teaching Open Enrollment courses. When he’s not hanging around the Steel Yard, you can find Luke raging with his screamo band, quietly sipping coffee at the local shop, cuddling kittens, traveling to exotic Washington DC and being an all-around charming weirdo.
