Check out this school! http://www.thecrucible.org/ Rode down to Oakland today for their open house & all I can say is this place is freakin RAD! They offer classes in almost anything that combines industry & art. TIG welding, machine shop, glass blowing, blacksmithing, hell they even offer a class in fire dancing! Evan Wilcox http://www.wilcoxmetal.com/ offers a class in sheet metal forming for motorcycles that I would love to take. If you haven't heard of this guy check his site. Beautiful work! Oh yeah, they also offer a course in motorcycle maintenance. Classes aren't cheap but right now they are offering 30% off tuition. Check em out.
