  • 115 US dollars
  • The Yard on Santa Fe

Service Description

INSTRUCTOR: Ashe MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is a widely used form of arc welding that channels electricity through a solid metal wire fed through a welding gun-- it's a lot like using a hot glue gun but instead of glue it's metal! This class is geared towards curious artists, makers, and persons that want to experience MIG welding in a non stressful environment. This class will combine simple welding techniques, as well as some shaping and fabrication that will allow participants to design and create their own free standing steel sculptures from repeating shapes. This class differs from the MIG Welding 101 because it does not fully go into the welders, how to use them and set them, and the consumables involved. Instead, we will learn how to weld on a pre-set machine, and participants will be able to focus more on their sculptures than the intricate ins and outs of how to weld professionally. LEVEL: Beginner PRE-REQUISITES: None OPEN STUDIO QUALIFIER: No DURATION: 2 hours (approx.) CAPACITY: 2 people AGES: 14+ (9-13 with adult supervision-- contact for details)
