    Based on attending a previous class, they will provide the tools and metal bars you will work on. They recommend wearing a long-sleeve shirt of a natural fiber (artificial fibers like polyester can burn easier), as small sparks can fly off the hot metal pieces. Same goes with shoes. Expect to get your clothes a little dirty.

    Safety glasses are recommended as well (for the same reason as above); if you have sensitive ears ear plugs would help dampen down the noise of several people hammering metal. There may be some safety glasses you can borrow, but the number is limited. They are pretty cheap to buy at any hardware store, and are a good thing to have around for household projects.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
