Class Details: Every Sunday and most Wednesdays from 9am–3pm. Cost is $200 for one person, $180 if you bring a friend (or two).
Class Description: In this six-hour class, we will cover the basics of welding using MIG welders, to have you safely and effectively ready to start your very own furniture, bicycle chopper, or top fuel dragster project. We will be emphasizing skills and techniques that will make welding more accessible to those without extensive workshops, toolsets, or experience. During the class we will cover safety, metal procurement and selection, welding technique, and finishing/rust prevention techniques. We will then apply all the new skills to make a 12″ pillow that we’ll try to destroy.
About MIG: A MIG welder is like a hot glue gun for metal. It uses electricity to melt steel and feeds out more steel as you go, so it’s the fastest and easiest welding technique to learn. It’s also ideal for making furniture, making gates, doing general welding repairs, and building scrap metal sculpture.
Also, after Intro MIG, you can come in and work on your own projects during Open Shop
Requirements: No prerequisites or experience required. Standard clothing. 18 or older or minors 14-17 can sign up with a participating adult (and sign up for two spots).
