This Meetup was canceled.
Students (age 12-17) will learn the basics of cutting, welding, its application, and safety. We will cover cutting with a band saw and basic info on types of welding and welding machines. Bring your project (Mild steel only - no large projects - check with instructor to see if it is acceptable) or use scrap and parts on hand to make art work, gift or small home project. Think office organizer, jewelry holder, candle holder. Bring your imagination.
Student must wear natural fiber clothes (100% cotton, leather, hemp, bamboo, linen, etc) and shoes. Closed toed leather shoes (no mesh). Covered arms and legs (long sleeves or short sleeves with a button up shirt and long pants).
If you have your own safety equipment you can bring it. Bring reading glasses if needed (must see up close).
Class is outside so dress appropriately. Attendees will be notified if class needs to be rescheduled for inclimate weather conditions.
