Learn to weld and make things at LA’s only community metal shop!
Molten Metal Works provides welding instruction and metal shop access to the community of Los Angeles. We don’t certify welders or teach how to weld I-beams. Instead, we focus on what most people need: how to fix a fence, build your own furniture, and make sculptures, chandeliers, or custom motorcycle parts. We’ve got 4,000 square feet full of tools, the expertise to match, and more patience than your seventh grade shop teacher.

Instagram post 2220715573220753128_388392639 One of my favorite things about teaching oxyacetylene welding is when people realize how soft and pliable steel gets when it’s red hot then strong and gravity-defying when it’s cooled off.  Here’s @liz_robb, an incredible fiber artist, playing with steel in last week’s oxy sculpture class, plus some of her textile pieces for comparison. All pics by Liz.  Next class starts thurs morn! •#Repost @liz_robb
