STUDIO ACCESS AT THE YARD
For a small fee, we provide Studio Access outside of course hours in the welding, blacksmithing, and jewelry departments. This is an affordable way to access tools and equipment as well as the supervision of an experienced studio monitor to finish the project that you began during your course or start a brand new project.
To help you better prepare for your time at The Yard, please view our Accessibility Guide.
HOW TO GET STUDIO ACCESS
FREE STUDIO ACCESS FOR AGES 18 & UNDER
If you are 18 years of age or younger and previously completed a program in welding, blacksmithing, or jewelry at The Steel Yard, you can access the studio free of charge during designated times. Complete the Community Studio Access Request Form. You will receive an email once we have confirmed availability and eligibility.
NEED EVEN MORE SHOP TIME?
We offer day rentals for people who’ve previously taken a BEGINNER & above level welding, blacksmithing or jewelry course at The Steel Yard. Day rentals are available for a minimum of 4 consecutive hours, Monday through Friday and are limited to 2 consecutive days. Day rentals are billed at $15/hour; to schedule email email@example.com.
If you need even more time to work on a project, prototype, or commission piece, our Micro-Residency is a great way for you to get 24/7 studio access, for at least one month, or up to a maximum of three months.
