What you'll learn in this welding class:

The class is unique because it is "limited to 2 people". You will receive individual help. The class is taught by an artist who has experience teaching both sculptors and welding certification for Unions. She is a Part-Time Associate Professor at Parsons School of Design, teaching Metal Fabrication. This class is an empowering experience for both beginners as well as people who have experienced welding in the past. The Studio has a wall of open windows for excellent ventilation.

In this class you will set the machine, tack, and run a bead. While learning these skills, you will create a unique small sculpture to take home. We will discuss the many advantages of Mig welding when setting up your own shop, creating furniture, art, fabrication, etc. 

What to wear:

  • Wear closed toe leather or suede shoes and cotton socks.
  • Do not wear clothes you care about. Cotton jeans are best.
  • Bring a long sleeved sweatshirt and wear a long sleeved cotton shirt.
  • Welding gear and gloves are supplied and included with session. There is no fee for metal.

One of the best courses I’ve taken! First off, Michelle is an incredible teacher and sculptor! I learned more about welding than I thought possible in just two hours. She’s very patient and knowledgeable and it was a lot of fun to get this kind of hands on experience with metalwork sculpture. Needless to say it was a great way to spend the weekend, and if you’re on the fence about signing up for this course DO IT!

My son and I had a great time. My son has experience welding, I am a total newbie. Michelle was an excellent teacher to us both. We learned a lot and we each made a very cool jewelry/key holder, both of which are already being put to good use! I can't recommend this class enough.

AMAZING class! Trust, I had absolutely no experience with welding. I work at a desk all day; this was a polar opposite of my day to day world. I was a bit nervous, but Michelle put us at ease quickly, explaining all the safety measures in place within the work area and equipment. There was so much intrigue with all the tools/equipment to see and touch, the time FLEW by! Her instructions were clear, her responses detailed and animated, she really kept our attention with ease. I learned even while watching her instruct the other student. The location itself was captivating, located at the historical Brooklyn Navy Yard with so much history and even some of Michelle's own functional art structures on display! I walked away with an extreme sense of accomplishment, and some new knowledge in this niche area. This was not just a class, but an EXPERIENCE.

Metal can be a rigid medium. I like to make it move. I play with both visual motion and actual motion in creating sculpture. One’s imagination can make my sculpture flow.

The art reflects a contemporary raw industrial elegance.

I often repurpose items or ideas from a community's past, into new art forms....
