At the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, our very own Alan Bremer spent last weekend demonstrating fold-forming, one of the many techniques used in the art of metalworking. We're excited to be working with BSA to offer a program where scouts can earn the Metalworks Badge at MAGG.
Our Metalworks Badge program consists of three opportunities for scouts to earn the badge, and each participant will learn the basics of studio safety and metallurgy. Depending on the day they choose, participants will either create a handkerchief slide with scout themes, a decorated metal box, or cast an object in either pewter or bronze.
Through this program, scouts will have the opportunity to learn hands-on about the art and science of metalworking, and gain valuable skills in creativity, design, and problem-solving. They will also learn about studio safety and the importance of using proper techniques and equipment.
At MAGG, we are committed to providing educational opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels who are interested in the art of metalworking. We believe that this partnership with the Boy Scouts of America is a great way to introduce young people to the world of metalworking and inspire them to explore their creativity and imagination.
We are excited to be working with BSA on this program, and we look forward to welcoming scouts to MAGG to earn their Metalworks Badge. For more information about this program, please visit the Atlanta BSA website.
Thank you for supporting the arts and education in our community, and we hope to develop more community outreach programs in the future.
