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.
