Hey there fellow eccentric creative types! I recently put together a metal working shop and would love to provide something to the arts community in West Michigan. I can offer really cheap welding lessons using rather inexpensive equipment you can get yourself for around $1000. I love teaching people what I know, because much of my knowledge was gleaned the hard way over 15 years as a professional welder/fabricator. The process I’m teaching is called TIG welding and if you don’t know much about welding I’ll tell you right now that it’s the process to learn. You can literally weld any kind of metal with this process if you have the right kind of TIG machine. I just have a little DC machine right now, which means I can’t do aluminum or similar metals. But I can show you how to use it, and it only costs around $650 (very very cheap relative to other welding machines) and best of all it runs off of household electricity. I only ask around $20 per session for welded metal sculpture classes and you could get a basic understanding of TIG welding and maybe oxy-acetylene cutting/brazing/welding after just a couple sessions. I even have a lehr for vitreous enamel, bet you haven’t heard of that before. Pretty cool stuff. I can even let you use my equipment for a small fee after you git gud if you want to get into welded metal sculpture. I’m also an expert fabricator if you’re the type of artist that prefers to only design the work and have someone else build it. So email me and together we can populate the planet with bizarre and eccentric metal forms.
