Ever just want to pick up a 6000* flame torch and just see what it could do? Or try using a glue-gun that melts steel in an instant? Sign up for our Welding Taster class and try out all three welding techniques that MMW offers, plus two forms of cutting (one is a plasma cutter, and seriously, it’s like using a James Bond tool–it’s awesome). It’s a super fun way to spend a Friday night.
It’s a quick 3-hr class that covers a ton of material; not enough to go and do any of it on your own, but enough to give you a pretty good sense of what welding is all about, whether for your job or for your curiosity. Plus you’ll get to make a cowbell, and as Christopher Walken always says, “gOtta HAve more COWbell.”
Class Details: This class runs for 3 hrs, usually 7-10pm on Fridays. Cost is $80 for one person, $140 for two people. Instructions here for signing up two people (first make sure there are two spots available).
Prerequisites: This class has no prerequisites, though you should be comfortable around loud noises and sparks and not squeamish with power tools. You should also wear long sleeve 100% cotton or wool shirt and pants (no synthetic melty stuff) and all leather or canvas shoes (work boots, cowboy boots, vans all good, running shoes with synthetic melty stuff or clogs bad). Bring reading glasses if you need them. Other than that, I’ve got all the materials and safety gear. All participants must be 18 or older.
Standard Clothing: You will be required to wear long sleeves and long pants, both made of 100% cotton or wool, and all leather or canvas shoes (Vans, Converse, work boots, cowboy boots all good; ballet flats, clogs, running shoes, all bad). No synthetic melty stuff. Please bring reading glasses and something to tie your hair back if you need either.
Refund/Rescheduling Policy: We hope you can make the class, but things happen. If you need to cancel, we can refund your money 7 days ahead of the start of the class (minus a $25 registration fee). You can reschedule the class 48 hrs before the start of the class. There are no refunds or rescheduling 48 hrs after that.
