Creative Welding and Metalwork provides the unique opportunity to learn new, hands-on skills and create sculpture, wall art—or more practical pieces—within the surprisingly versatile medium of metal. Designed to accommodate those with no welding experience as well as those who have been welding many years, students can choose their own project and LCC Welding faculty Jeff Seelye will help guide the process through one-on-one instruction.
Topics covered include the basics of welding, which can be self-paced based on experience level, and processes and techniques will be demonstrated including layout and fabrication tips, blacksmithing and forging, drawing out, tapers, scrolls, bending and upsetting.
Basic Materials are included in the price of the class; additional supplies may be purchased by the student and will be dependent on the chosen project. Students must provide their own safety equipment and appropriate attire by the first day of class. This includes welding gloves, long pants (preferably 100% cotton, no synthetics), safety glasses. Optional: your own welding jacket and helmet.
