The experienced artisans at Stonybrook Fine Arts anoint mortal hands with metal-bending powers in introductory welding and ring-making workshops. Three-hour welding tutorials are capped at six students, so couples, pals, and officer-parolee duos can soak up attentive instruction in oxy-acetylene, stick, and MIG techniques, each of which harnesses intense heat to cut, soften, and sweet-talk steel into realizing the shapes in one’s imagination. Pairs can also spend a scintillating four hours in a ring-making workshop, absorbing metalworking techniques that might include sawing, piercing, shaping, and joining. Ring-making workshops are capped at 10 students, each of whom departs with an original handcrafted finger bauble made of silver. Ring-making parties provide a more private crafting experience for up to 10 friends or 5 betrothal-ready couples seeking homemade digit décor. Necessary materials are included for all workshops; check the schedule to reserve spots in the studio of your choice.

About Stonybrook Fine Arts
A mosaic of metal parts forms a silver metal dog standing on its hind legs as it appears to catch a frisbee, while behind it, a brown dog, also made of various metal parts, stares attentively with ears up. These are just two of the sculptures outside the brick confines of Stonybrook Fine Arts, a celebrated studio where both teachers and students invent their own inimitable creations, whether they be jewelry, stone carvings, sculptures, or models for robot minions. Small group classes pepper the schedule, with rare selections such as foundry classes, which teach students to pour molten bronze into ceramic molds, and welding workshops, which inform all levels how to fuse and cut metals with gas torches and plasma cutters. Within the workshop, students are immersed in the entire metal-casting process, pouring and finishing their pieces under the watchful eyes of professional artists-instructors.
