I love to weld, and I love to create. While I learned to weld in an industrial setting, I taught myself to weld creatively through trial and error. With over a decade experience sculpting in metal, I want to share what I have learned with others. Creating art is all about experimentation and feeling things as you go. But learning to weld and use the tools of the trade can be intimidating to get started!
My goal is to guide new students through the basics, to get familiar and comfortable with the equipment and techniques, and show how easy it can be to learn to weld and sculpt. Work the metal with your hands, understand how to manipulate the materials and make tools work with and for you, and you will witness how you can conceive an idea and make it a physical reality.
When you know how to work with metal, you have the power to create anything you want - a sculpture, garden art, a table - this could even start you on a path to a new career!
Metalworking can be intensive, but it is also artistic and even meditative. When you implement the skills you've learned and allow your imagination to soar, there is nothing like the feeling of seeing your ideas come to life!
