Welding and Weaving Garden Art teaches you how to design and make a large-scale garden sculpture by weaving metal and welding it together.
Welding Dakota into Stone will teach you how to translate a Dakota word into a sculpture that uses metal drilled into stone and welded about it.
Melding with Welding teaches how to bind steel, flint, and bone to create a sculpture welded with tungsten inert gas.
Pinching Giacometti focuses on the art of bending steel into abstract forms around stone.
Torching a Motherwell will teach you how to use a oxy-acetylene torch to fire an aluminum plate, creating an effect that evokes a Robert Motherwell painting.
