Spend two weeks ripping through steel with gas torches and fusing it back together with a 10,000° electrical arc! If you are between the ages of 14 and 18, let Camp Metalhead introduce you to creative metal fabrication. You will learn how to use the MIG welder, the oxygen-acetylene torch, various metal saws, and grinders to heat, cut, join, bend, and polish steel. You will use your new skills to work on personal projects to take home and a public art project being installed by the Steel Yard. This is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time – No previous experience necessary. All lunches,materials, safety equipment, and tools will be provided.
After successfully completing the program Metalheads will have access to the Youth Open Studios free of charge for as long as they are in high school or under 18 years of age. During these studio sessions students can work on their own projects and spend time experimenting in the shop with the support and guidance of skilled monitors.
