Metallurgy has revolutionized almost every aspect of human life, from the aluminum cans that contain our soda to the hammers we use to open them. Make some sparks with this Groupon.
Choose from Four Options
- $175 for a three-hour abstract metal garden-sculpture class (a $349 value)
- $75 for a one-hour garden glass wind-chime class (a $149 value)
- $95 for a two-hour glass sun-catcher class (a $195 value)
- $75 for a one-and-a-half hour abstract metal garden-sculpture class (a $175 value)
The one-and-a-half or three-hour garden-sculpture class teaches students how to use welding and metalworking tools, such as a plasma cutting torch. The three-hour session can be taken as one class, or divided into two 90-minute sessions. Participants will design, create, and take home their art. During the wind-chime and sun-catcher classes, students use repurposed glass from wine, beer, liquor, soda, and water bottles to assemble a custom piece.
Working Art at the Collaboratory
Working Art has a simple mission: to "make ideas tangible." But that simplicity has innumerable expressions through the organization—run by abstract artist and consultant Ceri Jones Salahadyn—whose resident artists and students seek to discover new ways to make artwork that is both functional and creative. Along with Working Art, The Collaboratory—the brainchild of Ceri and her late husband—has other divisions such as The Whole Way, in which Ceri uses her 20 years of business and leadership experiences to advise ways to fulfill the potential of art, industry, people, and businesses. Ceri believes strongly in art education, so she created the classes and workshops in the Ability Center.
