Event Details

Come practice your mad welding skills ( or if it’s been a while and you’re a little rusty. no problem!) make some awesome metal yard art or rustic home decor with Dustin Swiers! Safety comes first so wear your Welders Best which is: closed-toe shoes, work clothes that can get dirty or singed preferably jeans and a long sleeve 100% cotton shirt (synthetic fabrics can be flammable) and your hair up. Register here.

Want to take a Metal/Welding class but the dates/times do mesh with your schedule? Or you need advice and a little help with a personal project. Contact Dustin for a private class at dustin.swiers@gmail.com or 507-273-0745.


  • choose one of our pre-cut metal projects or discuss ideas of the freestyle sculptural project with Dustin
  • a quick overview of safety and welding technique
  • learn how to deburr and prep steal
  • make your sign or project functional by welding on a post, stand, or hangers (couple ideas for displaying your sign- garden post, mailbox hanging sign, wall-mounted sign)
