[click “Play” to hear Jon Hubbard on his up-coming courses] 

Welding Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts offers its own, original spin on Rosie the Riveter, the American icon representing women who worked in factories during WWII. This weekend, Saturday, November 14, and Sunday, November 15, Ah Haa offers an all-day course (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.), Welding for Women (Ages 13+). The teacher is metalsmith, teacher and artist Jon Hubbard, who holds an M.F.A. in Metalsmithing from Colorado State University and a B.F.A. in Metals and Jewelry from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology. Students will receive hands-on skills of cutting, forging and welding, and leave the class with at least one completed piece, either a small table or a planter. (Wear non-flammable long pants & long sleeves)

Hubbard has taught metalsmithing at Ah Haa since 2004. Early in the New Year, he will also be leading classes in furniture design and blacksmithing.
