Vad du kommer att göra

JUST LIKE THOR [God of Thunder]... YOU will harness the power of lightning at your fingertip!

BASIC DESCRIPTION:
A very unique one day class. Students will learn basic metal working skills then build a one-of-a-kind small creative art project to take home.
There's no other class like it in the U.S.A. (that I am aware of).

DETAILS:
Students will learn to use a "Plasma" cutter, a machine that cuts metal like it's butter. Students learn proper use of grinding and sanding tools. Students will learn basic MIG (wire feed) welding skills. Then we take 30 min break for lunch (on site). After lunch, students will pick through a selection of old gears, pipe, springs, nuts/bolts, horseshoes, railroad spikes and other interesting scrap metal supplies to use for their creation of art!
[Training Time 3 hrs, Creative Time 3+ hrs until completion]

A FACE MASK AND ALL OTHER SAFETY GEAR WILL BE PROVIDED.
NO ONE has ever been hurt during this class!

DON'T HESITATE TO SPECIAL REQUEST A DAY that works best for your schedule. I am flexible and can add or switch a date to accommodate your needs. OR, if you missed the 12 hour cut-off time to book a date then, try to contact me anyway via AirBnB Experiences. I often check messages a couple of hours prior to the start time.

My name is Day. Over the past 12 years of being a Metal Artist and Mentor, I worked on many large-scale interactive metal sculptures. Most of which were designed for the Burning Man Festival and later installed around San Francisco, Ca area. I'm a member of the San Francisco collective known as the Flaming Lotus Girls. I've worked with world renowned artists such as Anish Kapoor and Brad Howe. More recently, I assisted in design and build of a Sculpture for Facebook and an "Art Car" for the founders of Google. In my spare time, I mentor teens in an Apprentice Program with the YoungSparksFoundation.org. Personally, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to offer folks an experience which may not otherwise be available to them. My goal is to have students gain comfort in tapping into the creative side of their brain and share those results.

Var ni kommer att vara

My workshop is in a warehouse where many large-scale projects have been built and are currently being built right now! During your visit, I can offer you a brief history of the art spawned from the local art community and if lucky we'll get to view art "in progress" that day! The building season for Burning Man art cars and projects is from March until end of August, every year!
[UPDATE: Covid lockdown has halted most local art projects].

This was one of the most magical experiences I have ever had in the Bay Area. Day is a wonderful human and very gifted in her art/trade. She was willing to personalize the experience based on the person's interest and experience. This was our first time conducting metal work and it was just awesome. A truly unique and special experience.

What a fabulous experience!! We booked this for our 13-year-old son for his birthday while we were visiting San Francisco and could not be happier with the experience Day provided: she was focused first and foremost with safety and spent plenty of time making sure everyone knew how to use the equipment. She was also incredibly helpful in channeling our creativity in creating a truly one-of-a-kind art project we will treasure forever as a memory of this great experience. It was fun to "play with fire," but this experience was about so much more than that. We cannot recommend this experience and Day highly enough. It is something you will talk about and remember forever. Book it NOW!
