Hard to believe its our last class! With little time remaining, we jumped into our projects with lots of focus and determination.
A few projects had been completed the previous week, so some tinkerers used their time to experiment with different tools and create something small.
Just like wood can get a final sanding, we worked to file our welded sculptures to a final polish.
Drilling and bending metal were a really popular ways of manipulating metal in addition to welding throughout the course. As the tinkerers learned about the different ways they could work with metal, their imaginations took off with the possibilities...
After 7 weeks of hard work, creativity, learning, and lots of sparks, the tinkerers presented their handiwork to each other and their parents. It's been incredible to see their evolution from hesitant and slightly nervous beginners, to accomplished metal workers, confident in their new welding and metal manipulation skills.
