Have you been spending lots of time digging, planting, and tinkering in your yard? This spring, get your hands dirty in the Steel Yard metalworking shop while creating something unique for your yard or garden! This course is a great opportunity to build something special that will make your garden just a little more beautiful. In this introductory welding course, the instructor will show students welding and finishing methods while supplying the technical/aesthetic expertise to help students fabricate an elegant project. Ideas can range anywhere from decorative tomato cages to bird feeders, rusted steel planters, trellises, textured stepping stones, potted plant stands, wall mounted shovel or hose racks, custom signs, feeder stands, or a sculptural weathervane. Already have something in mind? Feel free to bring your own wild ideas to the table! Whether you tackle one larger project or several smaller ones is entirely up to you. No previous experience necessary—this is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time. Materials and tools will be provided.
