Megan Dean’s Frame Building Class at Center for Metal Arts in Johnstown by Jarrod Bunk

FRAMEBUILDING CLASS DAY 7-27

Center For Metal Arts has been drawing folks to Johnstown both domestically and internationally for the last five years. Students have attended from the UK, Germany, Australia, and plenty of other far-flung locations. The draw of the Smith Shop nestled on Iron street was too strong for me to let go of too, and I soon ditched my plans to dip on the city and opened up a bike shop not far away. You see, once that fire is lit, it’s hard to turn it off. There’s something special going on here.
