Class Details: Every Sunday and most Wednesdays from 9am–3pm. Cost is $225 for one person, $205 if you bring a friend (or two).
Class Description: In this four-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 project.
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.
Requirements: No prerequisites or experience required. Standard clothing (long sleeves, long pants, no synthetic fabrics. Natural fabrics- cotton, linen, leather etc. all acceptable, no mesh sneakers). 18 or older or minors 14-17 can sign up with a participating adult (and sign up for two spots).
This class will be held outside and capped at 4 people to provide plenty space for each student. For more on all the safety precautions we are taking, go here
