(Update as of 9/28/20) Hey folks! From now until October 5th, we are closed for retail/walk-in traffic for additional maintenance! For clarity, starting Monday (9/28) through Sunday (10/4) the studio will NOT be open to the general public. We appreciate your understanding. If you need assistance, please email info@rocafc.com or leave a voicemail at 585-349-7110. We’ll do our best to return your question in 24-hours. Thank you for your cooperation.

Arc + Flame has postponed all classes through Oct. 11th, 2020! We are still not cleared by NYS to run any classes for the general public, including open torch flameworking. This is based entirely on New York State’s mandates pertaining to COVID. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education. The same goes for our collegiate welding classes for engineering students through Rochester Institute of Technology and machining and HVAC students through Monroe Community College. Please read our re-open plan for more details. We appreciate your understanding.
