The Welding Studio operates as a research lab in the form of an industrial metalworking shop. Students can choose to gain trade-level knowledge of welding technologies or learn how to safely experiment with various processes to redefine how they may be used within the context of contemporary art practice. The shop supports hot and cold work and features a large fabrication space, fully stocked materials room, and high ceilings with an overhead hoist to accommodate large-scale work.
