Welding and Forging for Artists and Designers

In this class, students will learn the basics of blacksmithing and welding.  We will explore steel and copper metalwork with several skill-driven projects, including spatulas and ladles, tool making, and a design to build sculpture.  Safety and proper technique will be stressed. Towards the end of the class, projects will be more self-directed. Students will be allowed to explore their interests within the parameters of the class and will present a final project for critique on week 12.  

Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance.
