ABR 119: The Art of Metal Shaping
This course will introduce the student to "the working of sheet metals by hand." In addition to skillful handling of tools, it is necessary for the students to possess a thorough knowledge of the properties and behavior of materials in order to insure that they move in the desired direction when worked. Areas of study will include: Sheet metal shaping with hand tools over handcrafted wood forms, over anvils, and over sand/shot bags and fabricating hand-made parts using a range of sheet metal materials with varied thickness and hardness.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”—F. Robertson
