In a two-hour introductory course, experienced metalworker Rusty Oliver invites 6 to 12 people ages 12 and up to participate in a demonstration and lecture on a variety of metalworking subjects. No experience is required for this class, as students learn safety, metallurgy, and the use of machine tools, as well as observe demos on CNC plasma cutting, mig welding, and hand-tool use. Students may try their hand at mig welding if interested. <p>
At Hazardfactory, Rusty Oliver—whose wide-ranging experiences include large-scale fire sculptures, a television pilot for destructive remote-control vehicles, and an industrial-art mini-golf concept—invites students to experiment with metalworking and art concepts. Within the 3,000-square-foot art studio, sparks fly as metals are welded together and students learn the ins and outs of welding. Among the classes taught are MIG and TIG welding, furniture fabrication, and CNC plasma cutting.
