YOGA AND WELDING
This workshop pairs two hours of meditation and yoga with three hours of learning and practicing basic metalworking techniques. It may sound like a crazy combination, but trust us when we say that a morning of centering movement and breath is a great way to prepare the mind and body for an afternoon of “playing with fire” in the shop.
Led by Marnie Castor, this yoga class is appropriate for all levels. The afternoon shop session will begin with a healthy lunch and lecture led by Jack Sanders, followed by three hours of learning and practicing basic metal cutting, welding and grinding. A campfire happy hour with cold beer, savory snacks and a little guitar picking will cap off the day.
What you get:
– 6 hours of instruction/activity
– homemade lunch
– a metalwork keepsake that you made
– DBA sketchbook, patch and bandana
– campfire happy hour
Recommended shop attire: long-sleeved shirts, long pants and closed-toe shoes. Bring work gloves and safety goggles if ya got ‘em.
