When: Sat., Aug. 12, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. 2017
This community-oriented educational event is focused on making welding and skill-building accessible to Detroiters, hoping to get more locals versed in not just skilled trades but the art they can produce. During the one-day festival, 12 artists will be given 250 pounds of metal in order to fabricate a kinetic piece of art. Detroit Training Center will provide a portable welding bus where they will host demos and the Welding Artisan Center will build a drift bike on site. Detroit Bikes and Motorless City Bicycle Co. will be on site and the Luddites and Nina and the Buffalo Riders will perform.
