Welding is a very useful skill yet many find it intimidating. This class will eliminate the fear factor in a hands-on environment geared toward creating artistic pieces. You will learn basic metal fabrication techniques and use of equipment such as MIG welders, grinders, chop saws, and other metal-working tools – everything you need to learn to build your own sculpture. You can choose to make artwork for your yard or an African mask-style wall sculpture. Materials will be steel and/or found metal. Safety instruction and safety gear included.
