What you'll learn in this welding class:

Looking to dip your toe into the world of welding? Or maybe you’ve never thought about welding at all, but you’re looking for a fun, out there, Friday night. 

It’s a quick, super hands-on, 3-hr class that covers a ton of material; not enough to go and do any of it on your own, but enough to give you a pretty good sense of what welding is all about, whether for your job or for your curiosity.  Plus you’ll get to make a cowbell, and as Christopher Walken always says, “gOtta HAve more COWbell.”

You’ll use a 6,000° flame torch to bend and melt steel, then a plasma cutter that’s basically straight out of a James Bond movie to cut steel, and finally a 12,000° electric arc MIG welder to weld everything together! A bit more exciting than going to see whatever the latest sequel is, no?

This class has no prerequisites, though you should be comfortable around loud noises and sparks and not squeamish with power tools.

You should also wear long sleeve 100% cotton or wool shirt and pants (no synthetic melty stuff) and all leather or canvas shoes (work boots, cowboy boots, vans all good, running shoes with synthetic melty stuff or clogs bad).

Bring reading glasses if you need them. Other than that, I’ve got all the materials and safety gear. All participants must be 18 or older.
