Class Description: The Oxyacetylene Torch is the most versatile of the welding techniques we teach at MMW. The same torch can be used to hot-bend metal into beautiful organic curves, to weld together two pieces of metal, to braze together two different types of metal, and to cut through steel plate as thick as 1″. Plus, instead of using electricity, Oxy uses fire, which makes you feel like a total badass. For the first three weeks, you’ll make a couple projects that familiarize you with the various uses of the Oxy torch, and for the last three weeks you’ll get to make you’re very own sculpture of whatever you want, under the experienced and guiding eye of shop founder Matt Jones, MFA (yeah, we know, hard to believe just by looking at him).
Requirements: No prerequisites or experience required. Standard clothing. 18 or older or instructor permission.
