About The Event
Welding is such a versatile skill to have and comes in handy when something needs to be fixed, fabricated or your creativity kicks in. We are excited to show you how to get started and help you get the basics under your belt so you can move on to the fun stuff. In this session you will be using both the MIG and Arc welders to learn: welding safety, equipment use, proper preparation, hands on practice of various types of welding joint techniques, as well as what quality welds should look like and how to trouble-shoot. Each student will be adding to “the rubber-band ball” that is our weld monster (aka scrap steel) because this workshop is set up as a first time experience and practice session (there will be no specific project that you will be taking home at the end of this lesson). Safety comes first so wear your Welders Best which is: closed toe shoes, work clothes that can get dirty or singed preferably jeans and a long sleeve 100% cotton shirt (synthetic fabrics can be flammable) and if you have long hair wear it up and out of the way. Course is open to anyone who is determined and excited about learning the ways of molten metal fusion while in a respectful and encouraging environment that is open to all. Class is designed for up to FOUR students, $35 Non-Members $30 Members, so grab your besties and let those metal sparks fly!
