Welding for the Weekend Warrior is a workshop designed for anyone with an interest in learning the process of arc welding for the purpose of joining steel. This is a very useful skill that once learned, will allow the home hobbyist or handyperson the ability to fabricate or repair such things as steel tables, chairs, storage containers, shelves, custom racks, auto parts/accessories, lawn art and even metal sculptures.
Many would like to try arc welding, but are afraid of the dangers associated with it. This workshop will teach you the basics of welding using Shielded Metal Arc Process in a safe and responsible manner.
The workshop is available for the absolute beginner, or those who have taken a workshop with us previously and wish to build on the skills learned thus far. Workshops meet for 4 hours on the Saturday mornings scheduled, and all safety equipment and tools are provided, however students must wear 100% cotton clothing (t-shirts and jeans are fine) and leather work shoes or boots (steel toe not required). If you have your own safety gear, you can feel free to bring it along with you.
