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 learning MIG and Arc welding: 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 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 your hair up.

Course is designed for up to FOUR students,

$35 non-members, $30 members. So grab your besties and let those metal sparks fly!

PLEASE Register and Purchase Tickets well before class starts ( No Later than 2PM the day of class, this is important so the instructor can have enough supplies prepped ) Walk-In tickets will be an additional $10

If you have any questions about registering or the availability of tickets (Member/ Non-Member) please get a hold of us and we will get it sorted.
