WELDING & Shop Basics ~ 3 hr 30 mins (2019-11-17 starts at 11:00 AM)
Welding is like you've harnessed the sun at the tip of your fingers! It's much easier to learn than you can imagine. If my 10 year old daughter can do it, so can you! If you're even remotely curious about what this experience is like then take a moment to read the reviews. You'll see the Sculpture Class is the same as the Welding Class in that you will learn most of the same skills however, there's no time available to build an art project in this Welding & Shop Basics. Students will first be briefed on safe behavior in an industrial work space. Instructor will demo use of a manual "Plasma Cutting Machine. Then use of hand-held electrical tools, such as an Angle Grinder, a Sander and a Cutting Wheel then students will get guidance from the Instructor during their use of the tools. Students will be given instruction on how to run and operate a wire-fed welding machine. Students will first watch and listen closely while the Instructor demonstrate how to join metal by creating "welds". Then under close guidance each Student will practice welding themselves. The remaining of the class time students will simply practice use of the various new skills on scrap metal. Won't be enough time in this class to build art. I offer a "Metal Sculpture" Class if you desire to learn these same skills and take home an awesome art piece. I promise you it's well worth the price! NOTICE: All safety gear will be provided. Leather closed-toed shoes must be worn. Heavy cotton or denim pants, and cotton long sleeved shirt. Tie back long hair. If you already have your own helmet and/or gloves then bring those. It's best that you wear that which you already are most comfortable using or wearing. Email me will any questions.
