The skill-building program for kids, adults, and community partners at the UNC Asheville STEAM Studio.
I have been the welding instructor for the Skill Set program since it began in 2018, and it has become one of my greatest joys. It is a community program that brings young girls and non-binary kids into a shop environment, introducing them to tools and equipment they may otherwise not have access to. The classes are project oriented, and every student comes home with something they made themselves. We have also started hosting adult classes - so if you or your child are interested in learning a new skill, click the link below!
