Angle Grinding and Sandblasting Orientation

Angle Grinding and Sandblasting Orientation

Learn about using the angle grinder, sand blaster and patinas as various finishing techniques on your metal projects!

Students will practice cutting and resurfacing sheet metal with an angle grinder to create their patina swatches using a cutting disc and interesting textures/patterns with a flap wheel. Then students will learn how to prep the metals with a media blaster before applying different shades of patinas.

By taking this class, students are approved to use the tools covered in class, and additional instruction is encouraged if you are completely new to this type of equipment! 

Please note that if you do not dress appropriately for this class you may not be able to fully participate and you will not receive a credit or refund.

What to wear:

Students should ensure that long hair and loose clothing is pulled back and wear closed toed shoes. Safety shields/glasses/ear muffs are available and should be used while operating this equipment. Long pants are also advised.
