Molten Metal Works provides welding instruction and metal shop access to the community of Los Angeles. We do not certify welders or teach you how to weld I-beams. Instead, we focus on what most people need: how to fix a fence, build their own furniture, and how to make sculpture, chandeliers, or custom motorcycle parts. We’ve got 4,000 square feet full of tools, the expertise to match, and a lot more patience than your seventh grade shop teacher.
We offer about 30+ different classes from absolute beginner to advanced, and projects building everything from sculpture to furniture, to fountains, to Jeep bumpers. But to keep it short here’s a selection of upcoming classes that are perfect for getting you started. To see the full list of classes, click here.
