COVID Update (8/12/20): We have been closed again by County Order on Phase 3 businesses, but we’ll reopen with Intro MIG (outside) and Intro TIG classes. See calendar below for what’s available.
Molten Metal Works is CLOSING on 12/12/20 and will not be offering classes, lessons or any of our past offerings.
We hope to reopen sometime in the future, but no plans as of yet.
If you are looking to learn how to weld – try College of the Canyons, LA Trade Tech or the Crucible if you are up north in Oakland.
All the Best,
If you’ve never welded before, start here for information about the different welding types and pros and cons of each.
Requirements for all classes: We can teach about anyone to weld, but you have to be at least 14, not have a pacemaker (except for oxyacetylene), and it really helps if you can see decently in the dark (for instance, you don’t have trouble night driving). You should also not be squeamish around power tools and sparks. Students under 14-17 must bring a participating parent or guardian to group classes (and sign up for two spots).
Clothing for all classes: 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. COVID: bring a mask and bring your own water. Test out your mask to confirm it won’t fog your (safety) glasses.
Refund/Rescheduling policy here.
