Description

If you aren’t sure what this class is about, just Google “welded yard art” to visualize how you can let your imagination run wild for two days and create unique pieces of welded yard art. Bring your junk tools, wrenches, rakes, etc., – anything a magnet will stick to. You’ll learn how to cut, grind, heat, bend, and weld it all together to make a classic “critter.” Get an idea from Google Images (or your cousin’s backyard) and start scrounging now to collect what you will want to work with and bring to class with you. A limited amount of “junk” will be provided if needed. Re-rod for legs and feet will be available for purchase by the foot.

No welding experience necessary.

Dick Anderson is a retired high school shop instructor with a passion for learning and building things. Having often taken the path less traveled has made all the difference and led him from building timber-framed covered bridges and log cabins to chainsaw wood carving, shoe making, and welded yard art, to name a few. Dick believes learning should be serious fun. “Believe me when I say, crossing a bridge in your future will be a bit easier after you have built one or two.”
