There’s More Than One Way to Toast A Marshmallow

weldersAnd there is more than one kind of summer camp — Camp Metalhead at the Steel Yard is now taking applications for the summer session.

Camp Metalhead is a FREE two-week long intensive introduction to creative metal fabrication from July 20th to 31st… you will learn about the history and profession of metalworking in Providence and beyond.  Each morning, you get a behind-the-scenes experience at a local manufacturing business or artist’s studio.  The rest of the day is spent learning how to weld!  You will learn the basics of shop safety and various metal fabrication techniques including MIG welding and oxyacetylene torch cutting.  At the end of the program, you will design and fabricate a piece of functional public art to be installed in the community. To attend Camp Metalhead, you must be between the ages of 14 and 18.  You can be male or female, and you do not have to be currently in school. Enrollment is limited. Preference is given to those living in Providence and from local public schools.

You haven’t lived until you have eaten an arc-welded, die-cut, annealed, hammered and tempered s’more. Also, you will never be forced to sing ‘Kumbaya’, although you are free to do so.
