Artistic Welding is designed to give you a basic understanding of safety practices, familiarity of equipment used, metals and how to alter them for certain purposes, and different welding techniques. During this three hour, five-week long class explore your own artistic ideas by creating a fun work of art. What a great way to bring life back into old tools, collected junk and yard sale finds. Be part of this fun, rewarding welding opportunity!
All welding clothing will be provided by Mid, however students should wear cotton long sleeves, long pants, closed toed shoes and bring a baseball style hat and leather gloves (need not be welding gloves).
Students will provide many of their own items for welding on their second week of class. Instructor will provide additional details.
Dan has been welding for 40 years and enjoys pairing his technical skills with creative pursuits. He has sold artistic works at galleries in Wyandotte and Boyne City, and is currently working on a large mascot sculpture for a local high school. Dan brings an infectious energy to his classes, and is sure to ignite your creative spark for mixing welding and art!
Moving to this beautiful area, I basically knew no one. I started looking for places to connect with interesting people. The Mid Michigan College Lifelong Learning artistic welding class sounded interesting. It certainly was nothing I had ever thought of doing, but it has been a great opportunity to try something new, something that challenges me in completely different ways.
The instructors have been so kind and patient. They have worked with each one of us, encouraging and teaching us based on what we want to do – it's not cookie cutter. I really appreciate that.
I’ve shown my pieces at several art shows – mostly around Traverse City – and had a lot of fun interacting with folks. It’s a completely new experience.
