Welding and Metal Sculpting Class in Action

Michael Daniel

Thanks to one of my students, Yutong Cho, I have some great photos and videos to share of some classes at Michael Daniel Metal Design! These photos and videos were taken during one of my Fall 2012 introduction to welding and metal sculpting class sessions, and they show some of the skills that students learn during the course. Here's a typical Arc welding demonstration:

Teaching Welding and Metal Sculpting

Michael Daniel

I started teaching welding and metal sculpting again last week.  I've got a great group of beginning students, who are all eager to learn.  It's been a while since I've taught, but it's nice to see students get excited about learning skills that I now do without even thinking about it.  It reminds me of how excited I was when I took my first welding class so many years ago at SVA.  I knew after the first session that I wanted to do this the rest of my life.
