Heat Forming


Bring the heat in this exciting 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, model steel into dynamic forms that dance in space. Students must have previously completed Beginning Metalworking, or have prior metalworking experience (contact the Office to discuss).
