I have found that there are many people who want to make things, but struggle to go from making small trinkets to larger scale projects that look finished, especially when those projects aim to integrate multiple components or processes. I intend to teach Illustrator, the plasma cutter, the spot welder, and glass cutting. Everyone will create their own design and their own lamp using sheet metal and stained glass sheets. The class is free and all materials will be purchased beforehand.

I plan to take 8 students and run two sessions (in the same week). The class will last one week of IAP. Last year a similar class I ran was overenrolled, so you must be able to attend every day of the class. Extra work outside of class hours may be needed for the design portion of the class dependending on design complexity. I will do my best to finalize the class list by 12/22/23 and will send an email to everyone to let them know who is in the class.
