Creative Welding Course Offered at Aims Community College Summer and Fall Semesters

 

 GREELEY – Local artist, Loren Roper will be instructing a Creative Welding course both this summer and fall at Aims Community College. The summer class will commence May 27 through July 7, and will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 9:35 p.m. There are only four openings remaining for the summer semester.  This fall there will be three different sections available to students:  Friday evenings; Saturday mornings; or Saturday afternoons. Students can register online; there are no prerequisites.  The course number is WEL175.

Prior to moving to Northern Colorado, Mr. Roper owned a blacksmithing business in Ohio.  He has created knives and hatchets, yard art, and wrought iron sculptures.  Some artists may be without the training and tools to satisfactorily introduce metals into their work.  This class provides a broad exposure to various methods of grinding, twisting, shaping, bending, cutting, fusing, brazing, and soldering metals.  

Mr. Roper can be reached at lroper_robin@comcast.net or by phone at 720-378-2201.
