Open Studios/Studio Access
For the working metal artist or experienced maker, we provide access to our metal shop beyond our classes. One of the most popular ways to get back into our studio is through Open Studios, offered each and every Sunday (check our homepage for cancellations). Open Studios are an affordable way to have access our tools and equipment as well as the supervision of an experienced studio monitor. It's a great way to finish what you worked on in class, or start a brand new project.
Open Studio participants have access to the same tools and equipment we use in classes, including MIG welders, ARC welders, use of the forges and blacksmithing tools, oxyacetylene torches, grinders, a metal chop saw, horizontal band saw, and many small hand tools. All this for just $30.00 per 3-hour session! Check the Calendar for days and times. Cancellations wil be posted on our home page.
Open Studio sessions are available to current and past Steel Yard students.
NEW OPEN STUDIO POLICY:
Before your first Open Studio session, you must contact our office to register. Registration is a free, one-time-only process and must be completed at least three days before you plan to access Open Studios.
Day & Hourly Shop Rental
Do you need more time and space than Open Studios provides? We also have daytime studio rental rates. The daytime program is great for individuals that would like to have the shop to themselves or to work on bigger projects that are more difficult to accomplish during regular Open Studios. These rental times are available to experienced metal workers only, as there is no monitor in the shop. You'll have access to all the same tools, with more room to work! Contact Brian Dowling, , to get more information and schedule access.
