John Septien is an instructor at the Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nevada. Here's his story.
"After teaching technical welding for 20 years I offered a Welding for Art class. I had been receiving enquiries regarding such a class and with the support of my administration I developed a curriculum. With a technical background in many processes and a former CWI/CWE, I continued my education by taking formal art classes at the community college and the university. The class has developed into a full-time four night per week program, averaging sixty students per semester. The photos are of student work."
*The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
