Handmade presents are the best! Or maybe you'd like to make something to brighten up your home during the winter months.
Attendees will learn the basics of cutting, welding, its application, and safety. We will cover angle grinding, cutting with a band saw and plasma cutter, 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 doable for class) or use the scrap and parts we have on hand to make art work, gift or small home project. Think office organizer, small jewelry stand, candle holder. Bring your imagination.
Student must wear natural fiber clothes (100% cotton, leather, hemp, bamboo, linen, etc) and shoes. Closed toed leather shoes. Covered arms and legs (long sleeves or short sleeves with button up shirt, and long pants). If you have their own safety equipment feel free to bring it. *Bring reading glasses if needed (must see up close)*.
