Event Description
Join us in the MetalShop at The Foundry to design a unique decorative night light. Introducing techniques used by both colonial crafters and modern Mexican masters, this class will guide you through the process of tin punching to create either an object that speaks to historical works or is formed by your own more modern take on this classic form of metal tooling.  Work with a small group to get a strong overview of basic metal shop tools and leave with a cutom piece of usable art. Must be 18+ Class Size: Min 3/Max 6 Please wear close-toed shoes and comfortable older clothing when you come to work in our shop! *Add a Membership - Special Winter Rates Basic membership allows makers to access the metalshop to work on projects during open shop hours with our Lab Supervisors. MetalShop members gain access to our makerspaces (metal, wood, textile and tech) for a total of 20 hours per month. Each space has its own safety or orientation session.
