We’ve been running classes every month since 2005! We teach a comprehensive approach to the craft including the Power Hammer and English Wheel.

What is included in the 130 hour Metal Shaping Class Special?

4-day (40 hrs) Coachbuilding / Metal Shaping class with the focus on all the steps to taking a flat sheet of metal, learning all the different methods of shrinking / stretching and planishing that metal, then fitting that developed panel onto a buck. Welding, edge work,  beading, detail work and surface quality are some of the other skill sets taught.

(90 Hours shop time) with the focus on perfecting the surface quality and flow of panels. Wiring edges, flanging edges, developing the weld joint and welding together, clean up of the weld, symmetry, panel assembly flow, and all of the finishing details will be the goal of each student and any additional learning which can focus on any aspect the student feels he / she needs improvement in. 

A total of 130 hrs of hands on classroom experience for one low price of $1599!
