Pratt offers one of the few blacksmithing programs in the region. Blacksmithing, or forging, is about transforming and shaping mild steel through the use of heat. Using basic techniques such as hammering, twisting, tapers, bends, and splits, you will have the opportunity to create sculptural and functional objects. Everyone is welcome, whether you're interested in taking more advanced blacksmithing classes or you just want a basic understanding of the process. Prerequisite: None. Supply Fee: $60.

Now that you've been through the beginning welding and fabrication class, take this opportunity to spend some time on the TIG torch and hone your skills as a fabricator. TIG welding gives you the ability to make small clean welds that are super strong. It also broadens your capability to work with non ferrous metals such as stainless steel and bronze. This skill is used in the high end fabrication world as well as with bronze casting artists. Weather you have a specific project in mind or you just want to learn this valuable skill, this will be a great way to continue your interest in metalwork. Prerequisite : Beginning Welding or equivalent. Supply fee : $60.

The Moravian Stool is a strong lightweight stool that teaches you all the basic steps of chairmaking. This class will be based off of the Christopher Schwarz plans that are rooted in the original stools from eastern Europe and very popular in historic Old Salem in NC. This class will be a mix of learning handtool and machine skills. Students will learn how to make tapered octagons, sliding dovetails, compound splayed legs and wedged through-tenons. You’ll end the class with a simple, elegant stool that has been well engineered to withstand the test of time. No prerequisite. If you already have spindle turning experience, you can turn your legs during class. You will not be taught how to spindle turn in this class. This class is a primer for the first chair class that will be offered in the Wood Studio in the next year. Supply fee: $70

Learn how to build curved wood shapes using veneer, a vacuum press, and a whoooole lotta glue. In this class, you'll learn the process of vacuum-press bent wood lamination by building your own custom-shaped skateboard deck. On day one, you'll sculpt the form for your deck from rigid foam insulation, cut maple veneers to shape, and work as a team to glue up your veneer stack. Overnight, your lamination will dry as atmospheric pressure holds the wood to the form. On day two, you'll remove your now-solid deck from the vacuum press, shape and sand the edges and faces of your custom deck, and drill truck holes (if you bring your own trucks). If time permits, you can also apply a sealer clear coat. This class is great for anyone--beginners to experts--who want to learn how to bend wood...for skateboards, furniture, or other woodworking applications. All supplies and tools for making your skateboard deck are supplied. Trucks, wheels, nuts/bolts, and bearings are not included. Bring your own trucks for drilling truck holes. Supply fee: $70

In this class, you will use various techniques to treat bowls that suffer from natural defects and those that suffer from malpractice. Wood moves, so you may have bowls that have cracks caused from shrinkage. Those can be stitched-up with hardwood biscuits, stabilizing the crack while adding a pleasing visual detail. Bowls that don’t have a solid bottom can be healed with decorative implants. Some of your bowls need cosmetic surgery to improve their visual appeal. They can be re-shaped on the lathe and decorative rims and surface features can be added. You may want to paint one. Various remounting techniques will be demonstrated. Students will supply their own patients for the class. Materials to be supplied by Pratt – wood rosettes, veneers, hardwood for biscuits, plates for remounting. Supply fee $50
