Learning a new skill is useful, especially if it means a promotion to a front-of-the-horse costume. Go to the head of the class with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $45 for a two-hour Welding 101 class for one (a $90 value)
- $85 for a two-hour Welding 101 class for two (a $180 value)
This class introduces pupils to the basics of welding, from the equipment used to the various techniques employed, such as MIG and TIG welding. Each student will get to try their hand at the machines.
- $115 for a two-hour computer-numerical-control (CNC) plasma intensive class for one (a $240 value)
CNC plasma technology allows precise 2D cuts to be made into metals such as steel and aluminum, and this class introduces students to the basics of the technology. Students will see a plasma cutter in action and learn its advantages and disadvantages and how it compares to similar devices. This class is recommended for all ages, as the technology does not involve any safety risks. After the demonstration, pupils will get to cut an project themselves with supervision from All Metal Arts' instructor and take the project home.
Welding 101 classes are held at the 1300 S Dearborn location, and CNC classes are held at the 7800 7th Ave. S location.
All Metal Arts
At All Metal Arts, Rusty Oliver—whose wide-ranging experiences include large-scale fire sculptures, a television pilot for destructive remote-control vehicles, and a large, industrial-art mini-golf concept—invites students to explore and experiment with metalworking and art concepts. Within the 2,200-square-foot art studio, sparks fly as metals are hewn together and students learn the ins and outs of welding. Class participants stand in closed-toe shoes and puddles of water to divert any potentially harmful currents to the ground so they don't ruin their hairdos. Among the classes taught are MIG and TIG welding, furniture fabrication, and CNC plasma cutting.
