What you'll learn in this welding class:

What makes this Course Unique is that is is taught by an artist who has experience teaching both sculptors and welders. 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 class is also unique because it will be limited to 2 people. You will receive individual help. 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.

Reviewed by Shamadhi A. on 11/21/2022
I absolutely LOVED this experience and could not recommend it more! It’s rare to find someone who is not only a fantastic and experienced artist with years of craft mastery up their sleeve; but also an exemplary professor. Michelle Greene was EXTREMELY patient, attentive, thorough, candid and welcoming. Her class is structured enough to have a good pacing, but flexible enough so that the teaching can be adapted to every students’ speed. I would recommend this for absolute beginners as well as more experienced welders who want to practice and widen their skills. In the end I could only feel inspired to continue working with metal, I hope I can keep on learning with Michelle, I will for sure be booking more lessons with her!

Michelle's class was great! It was interesting to learn about the different kinds of welding processes, and Michelle has tons of real world experience both as an artist and in the welding industry. And of course getting to weld for the first time was amazing. The idea of welding was intimidating, but Michelle made it super approachable and safe, so it was a lot of fun. And my small metal sculpture lives on my wife's bedside table, which is a nice memento. Highly recommend the class!
