Have you ever wanted to fabricate a small box from metal? Have you always thought about it but then put it off to the side because you were unsure of how to start or afraid that it was too complicated? This is the class for you!
Utilizing many different metalworking processes, including sawing, piercing, filing, sanding, and soldering, this class is a great exercise for all skill levels of students. Beginning students will have plenty of time to complete the project and master the techniques, while more advanced students can spend the extra time adding embellishments.
