Welding Basics

There are currently no openings available for this course.
 

Introduction:

New to welding? Well, here we offer a safe and accessible learning experience to get you started. Learn the safety aspects and operations of welding before having some hands-on practice on the MIG Welder. There’s no project, however, you’ll create a novel welded name plaque (a la “Myth Busters”) to take home.

This hands on workshop is designed for individuals who have been eager to explore welding but haven't had the chance. It's also ideal for those who wish to test the waters without a significant financial commitment to determine if welding aligns with your interests.

Maybe you’re an artist or designer frustrated on how others mystify the welding process, making it seem so inaccessible and difficult. Fear not, let us give you insight and experience into this immensely versatile world, you won’t regret taking the plunge.

In a small class, and taught by the very experienced metal artisan, Nyree L Smith, you are in good hands for a gentle and safe introduction to this skill. From here you will embark on your incredible journey into the creative and infinitely practical world of metalwork! Definitely, no previous metalworking experience required.
