Rae Ripple’s career

All of the contestants on Metal Shop Masters have different journeys. By the sounds of Rae’s, she had a pretty hard time when she was younger, but finding welding helped her out.

She said: “I think welding did help save me in a way. I was raised by two parents with addictions. I ran away from home when I was 14.

Rae then had a daughter at 17 years old and after finding art, welding and fabrication she said she slowly started to become who she think she was supposed to be.
