Rhode Island is the birthplace of the American industrial revolution, and along the Woonasquatucket River in the heart of Providence’s industrial valley you’ll find The Steel Yard. The Steel Yard carries on a tradition in the industrial arts: a centre for artists, businesses, educators and students.
With 5612 sq-ft of space the ‘Yard hosts a foundry, ceramic studio, as well as blacksmithing and welding shops. Some of the classes they’re currently offing include glass fusing and slumping, heavy metal ceramics, welding, forging and blacksmithing, aluminum casting, and even jewelry making.
I’m totally signing up for their weekend welding workshop. See you there.
