This is the first of four workshops required to qualify and eventually use the Tormach on your own. Workshop #1 occurs in two parts: the first a class room session; and the second at the machine tool. These sessions occur on different days. You will also have some homework to do on your own. Please make sure you are available for both days prior to registering.
The cost of this workshop is $100 and must be paid at time of registration. In addition you must already be certified to use the manual machines either having completed the Manual Machining workshop, or by having completed the practical. You must also be certified to use the Carvey.
Class size is limited to 2 persons. Additional workshops will be schedule one per month going forward in the event you are unable to participate in this one.
Participants completing this workshop will keep the soft-jaws they make, and will receive an end mill, both which they can then use with the machine once qualified.
Join our friends at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design as they host visiting artist Miguel Horn. A lecture will occur at 12pm followed by a workshop at 2pm.
