Artistic Welding 

Artistic Welding can be taken as part of the Theatre Production Arts certificate.


In this intensive, one-week course, discover the excitement and satisfaction of crafting in metal. Explore how to manipulate steel by bending, welding and texturing it to give life to your creative expression.

In this course participants will learn and expand skills used in building stage sets and props:

  • Train in the safe and effective use of power tools and equipment,

  • Explore the metal-working basics:  welding, cutting, grinding, shaping and fitting,

  • Practise and get creative with MIG welding. 

  • Discover Oxy-Acetylene gas brazing techniques,

  • Learn how to shape and hammer metal including using jigs and applying heat.

This is not a ticketed course. It is an artistic welding course meant to challenge students in the fascinating world of metalworking. Both sessions of Artistic Welding cover the above techniques, enabling participants to heighten their skill levels with imaginative projects.


The low student-to-teacher ratio in each course ensures instruction is geared to the participant's skill level and experience. Please indicate your related experience when you register.

The course fee covers the cost of basic materials; however, during the course participants have the opportunity to work on personal projects. Depending on the complexity of those projects, additional costs for materials may be incurred and are the responsibility of the student.
