Class was great! I now feel confident using the facilities at my job to MIG weld sculptures. 10/10!
I've been meaning to learn to weld for decades and I can't think of a better introduction than the one I got with Michelle. She's remarkably knowledgeable and experienced in a wide range of welding and metal working techniques, and, (more importantly for a beginner student), a skilled, patient and enthusiastic teacher. Her class was a great combination of information about the machinery and mechanics involved, (not only in MIG but in other welding techniques) and well paced and hands-on practice of well scaffolded skills. I feel like the lesson got me exactly the practical skills and information I needed to move forward, carefully, into the world of welding.
Michelle was a wonderful instructor and we came away with a great introduction to welding and some cool candle holders. This was a really fun way to spend Valentine’s Day.

Really enjoyed the energy and pace of the class. Doing a small 2 student group allowed for more a hands on time while still being able to observe another beginner at work. Michelle is very knowledgeable, a great instructor! I highly recommend all of her courses.
This was my first oxyacetylene class and it was such a wonderful experience. Michelle is an incredibly knowledgeable and natural teacher. She made me feel confident about working with the torch and described everything very thoroughly. On top of that, she is very friendly and we had great conversation. I learned so much and I’m looking forward to taking more classes in the very near future!! Thank you for a truly enjoyable class!
Michelle is a great teacher and kept us busy for the two hours learning heaps! Very hands on with world class instruction right when you need it. Great experience. Johan
Michelle was great- I learned so much in one class and came home with my first sculpture. I am looking forward to more!
This class couldn't have been better! Michelle is extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of welding and is an excellent teacher. I was a complete beginner and she was patient, confident and clear in her instruction. She was flexible in what she taught me and offered additional information based on what my goals were with welding. The time flew by, I'm proud of what I was able to make, and had an excellent time. This was the coolest thing I've done all year! I highly recommend Michelle's classes.
Loved the class so much! Michelle was an amazing teacher, combining great background and general information, technique instructions, and artistic guidance!! Would very much like to take another class with her!
Great class! Michelle is very thorough and technical, giving lots of detail. She also makes the class fun with a project and lots of knowledge on all welding topics!
Excellent experience. Michelle knew exactly what she was doing and my girlfriend and I had a blast. We also were thrilled that we were able to make some unique things of our own and take them home. Some of the best 2 hours I’ve spent in a very long time. Would absolutely recommend
Had a terrific evening with Michelle. Her patient and calm energy made the experience very enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try something new and creative.
Michelle was an EXCELLENT teacher. I learned so much, was not afraid of the equipment and felt I walked away with a path on areas to explore and skills to learn. I highly recommend this class as a way to learn, in depth, and to establish a baseline for Oxy-Acetylene Gas Welding.

Michelle is an excellent teacher and I learned a ton!
Great class, would definitely recommend! Hands-on, personalized lessons with very small class size. Michelle gives plenty of tips and tricks on how you could set up your own metal-working studio for low cost. Obviously very knowledgeable and experienced in her field.
Loved this class. It was hands on and very personalized! Learned so much and from someone that has been in the industry for many years. Thank you!
