Cut, Bend And Join: Welding For All

October 25, 2020 – October 31, 2020

Lauren Selden

If you want to check off welding from your bucket list, then let’s do it together. This hands-on introductory workshop provides students the basics of cutting metal, tacking pieces of metal together, gas welding and MIG welding. Students are challenged to design and fabricate a sculptural work with select materials. Class discussions focus on safety, types of equipment and how to properly operate the tools. Safety glasses, helmets and gloves are provided; however, participants are encouraged to bring their own shields and leather welding apparel if available. Let’s make art. Open to all skill levels.


Lauren Selden is an associate professor of Jewelry and Metalworking at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Her work has been exhibited in solo, invitational and juried exhibitions at national and international venues. Selden’s outdoor sculptures have been on public display in various cities across the country, and two recent sculptures were acquired by the San Marcos Arts Commission for their permanent sculpture collection.
