Really cool studio and equipment. The reason 3 stars is because you think you're going in to learn a skill. But in reality you're glueing the copper together so you aren't learning welding and the instructor installs the electrical hardware. So you don't actually learn anything.

Good and fun instructor explained everything well and learned a lot about welding in addition to having about 1hr of weld time from the 3 hour class.

Amazing instructor who seems really into his craft. Very knowledgeable. You get to cut, bend and weld metal and some minor wood work. You end up with a nice looking planter stand. Will be taking the knife making class next.

Great experience! Nothing to be intimidated about at all. Instructor was a real pleasant fellow and very approachable. He made it very easy to learn and follow along all the steps towards crafting your own handmade knife. Highly recommend......

The teacher was great and we were able to complete our knives. It would have been good to have a few more working spaces, but otherwise I had a great experience.

The class wasn't exactly what I was hoping for and I felt there were too many people in the class, which resulted in a lot of waiting around.
