This beginning class will focus on applying oxy-acetylene welding techniques to the fabrication of a sculptural project. Oxy-fuel cutting, welding and brazing processes will be covered. Learn the limitations and benefits of these processes through the design and fabrication of your own work of art. Discover scrap metal! Methods for identifying metals, surface preparation for scrap welding, along with aesthetic and protective surface treatments for finishing pieces will be covered. Additionally, we will touch on the history of art welding so that students develop an understanding of the art form’s past as well as the tools to inspire its future.


Instructor: Heather Doyle has studied welding and metalsmithing from an artist's perspective for more than a decade. She continues to explore the mediums of heat and metal through her business, INDUSTRYelle, designing metal sculpture and creating custom fabrication on a commission basis. Heather taught Sculptural Welding and Blacksmithing at Minneapolis Community and Technical College for seven years and served on the Minneapolis Arts Commission for four years. She is one of the founding board members of CAFAC and now serves as its Artistic Director.
