Cut, Bend And Join: Welding For All
October 25, 2020 – October 31, 2020
If you want to check off welding from your bucket list, then let’s do it together. This hands-on introductory workshop provides students the basics of cutting metal, tacking pieces of metal together, gas welding and MIG welding. Students are challenged to design and fabricate a sculptural work with select materials. Class discussions focus on safety, types of equipment and how to properly operate the tools. Safety glasses, helmets and gloves are provided; however, participants are encouraged to bring their own shields and leather welding apparel if available. Let’s make art. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
