Welded Metal Sculpture Workshop
Everything needed for class is included in price
Our Workshops are an excellent way for beginners to learn welding. Our experienced instructors will use a combination of classroom and hands-on lab instruction to enhance your understanding of safety, equipment setup, and welding technique on steel. All safety equipment and welding materials are included in the course price. Great for beginners and experienced welders!
The focus of this class is to inspire students to create metal sculpture out of steel using MIG and Plasma Cutting processes. Students are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild when creating their works of art.
