At all times, emphasis is placed on personal safety, including wearing masks and permitting only non-alcoholic beverages. The purpose of the studio session is for the customer to create a tabletop sculpture that expresses their own vision. Finished pieces make wonderful additions to home or gifts to family and friends. Students will be given the opportunity to make either a figurative or an abstract piece and to select metal pieces from an assortment provided to them. Then they will decide how they are to be assembled, using clamps and vises, and joined by welding. During the studio visit, Chris will guide the customers through the process of making a sculpture. He will answer all the questions and show examples of the kind of sculpture customers will make. Classes are limited to 2 persons.
