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" and we will were masks. The class structure is adhering to the current situation. You will receive individual help. The Studio has a wall of open windows for excellent ventilation.

 In this two-hour session you will become familiar with using a TIG machine. We will cover how to choose the right tungsten for the job, set the gauge, use the foot pedal, and weld. While you are learning, you can create a small steel sculpture to take home. We will discuss the many advantages of TIG welding when setting up a shop. Tig welding is a popular method used in bicycle frames. 


Gas welding or Mig welding or Arc Welding.

Note:  Safety is a priority. The torch and tools will be sanitized before each class. We will all wear masks. This is a common practice even when welding during normal conditions. Please bring your own mask to the class. Latex gloves are provided to wear under the welding gloves if you desire.

  • A Gate Pass will be emailed the day before the Welding session.
  • Wear cotton clothes that can get dirty. Do not wear clothes you care about. Long cotton pants or jeans with closed toe shoes and socks. Bring a cotton long sleeve sweatshirt. 
  • Welding gear, gloves, and welding hood are supplied and included with session.

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

Michelle is a brilliant instructor. Maybe its an alignment of idiosynchrocies, or maybe shes just THAT good, but the way she was explaining welding to me and the one other person in my lesson felt like she had mined decades of experience-ore, melted it down, poured it straight into my head, then welded the ends seamlessly. I had never done any welding before and took the class to learn more so I can make adjustments to my motorcycle project, definitely need to practice more but I think I got a pretty good foundation thanks to the one, the only, MG

We just took Michelle' Tig welding class and i can tell you that it was the most informative, hands on class i have taken in a long time. As a professional Blacksmith, I found myself in dire need of being able to tig weld. My ability at Mig welding is fair but for some of the stuff we need to do now i need much cleaner and stronger welds. I found Michelle on Course Horse, I am also a course horse teacher (Brandr Forge - Basic Blacksmithing ). I read her profile and decided she was the one to teach us (Myself and my two apprentices). She did not disappoint. She started with the basics, everything from setup to what we need for the particular work we are doing. She gave us a quick demo on torch position and rod position and we were off to the races. Within two hours we were laying down beads with full penetration. I highly recommend Michelle if you want to learn welding fast. She as over 30 years of experience and it shows!!!!!
