Bring the heat in this exciting new class that combines MIG and oxy-acetylene welding with forging. Steel was often considered a heavy, rigid, and industrial-specific media until artists such as Lee Bontecou unleashed its artistic potential. Develop skills and techniques to transform geometric stock material into fluid, curvilinear sculptures. Through heating, bending, hammering, twisting, and assembling, you may model steel into dynamic forms that dance in space. Grab your hammers and let’s meet at the anvil! No experience is necessary.
All supplies provided! Please wear appropriate clothes for an art studio (dress for mess!). Close-toed shoes are required for wood, metal, stone, or other sculpture classes. Eye and ear protection is provided, but some students prefer to bring their own which you are welcome to do.
