As part of our All Hands On youth programming, Sector67 will be presenting a series of four metalworking by hand sessions designed for Sector67 youth members and non-members.  The session is designed for youth from 7th grade through high school.  The sessions are two hours and will be held at the Sector67 space on:

  • Saturday April 22nd, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
  • Saturday April 23rd, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
  • Saturday April 29th, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
  • SundayApril 30th, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Attendance at ALL CLASSES listed above is required for participation.  Classes sessions build on prior sessions so if you’re unable to attend a session please do not sign up for this seminar.  The classes are taught by Sector67 members and experienced metal workers Quincy Millerjohn and Scott Hasse.

The series cost is $80, with scholarships available.  If you are interested in a scholarship please contact scott@sector67.org.  The sessions are very hands-on and participants should wear working clothes and appropriate shoes.  The classes consist of:

  • Where safety equipment lives at Sector67 and when/how to use it

  • What work areas are appropriate for metal drilling activity

  • When and how to clean up your work area.

  • Metal identification and properties

  • Project layout and drilling holes in metal.

  • Cutting metal using hacksaws and coping saws, including proper blade selection, evaluating and changing blades, and saw maintenance.

  • Filing and finishing metal, including sanding and hammering techniques for various surface finishes.

 

Our All Hands On programming has been developed with two primary goals in mind:

1) Empower kids with hands-on creative skills they can apply independently

2) Provide youth members with a clear pathway to gaining fluency with tools, space and procedures at Sector67
