Course Description: Welding is a large part of our lives from the cars we drive to the buildings we live in, and has become prevalent in modern art. Our welding students tour the MFA’s collection of welded sculpture, then practice various welding techniques at our studio. Students explore gas welding and arc welding and learn to use the many machines involved in welding and finishing.
