This month, we’re going heavy metal here at MAKE. Safely and effectively working with metal is a skillset that every maker should have, at least understanding the basics. So, over the month we’ll be looking at fundamental aspects of the skillset, from choosing materials, to measuring, cutting, forming, attaching/welding, and the tools you need to make all of this alchemy happen. And, of course, we”ll include some suitable metal projects.

Our guest contributor this month is Hackett, founder and director of the Madagascar Institute, the Brooklyn “art combine” specializing in large-scale sculptures, guerrilla art events, and carnival rides from hell. He is also an Adjunct Professor at New York University, and a “TV personality.” The fall season of his show, Stuck With Hackett, premiers August 18th on the Science Channel.
