June 12–16, 2017
For rising 5th–7th graders
Students will explore and think about sculpture, design, and metal fabrication in this project led by Oakland based master-metal designer and fabricator, Doug Hellikson. Students will study the structure of insects; create and prototype their own sculptures; and then fabricate them in metal using a wide range of techniques and tools including bending, shaping & cutting metal, and welding. Students will have the opportunity to use a plasma cutter, spot welder, mig welder as well as benders, rollers, hand shears, and arbor shears.
In this class, students will gain real exposure to welding and metal fabrication. This is a very special and exciting opportunity, and it also requires a level of maturity and mindfulness appropriate to the work of using such tools.
Additionally, students are required to wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and have covered ankles and wrists.
