Introduction to Welding


This workshop will focus on an overview of welding techniques and equipment. Students will learn to use an Oxy acetylene welder, plasma cutter, and MIG Welder to learn basic heating, cutting, and bending to create a custom sculpture. For the purpose of expediency MIG welding will be the primary focus. Students will be led through health and safety instruction and then will practice the basic techniques learned on scrap metal provided. With these skills, students will spend the second day constructing a metal piece of their own creation.
