Intro to MIG Welding (Inclusion Series)
Students will learn the basics of MIG/wire feed welding and using a hand-held plasma cutter, practice both, and then create a unique piece of their own! We will also have the option of welding a simple bird should you choose to use the outline provided rather than creating your own.
This workshop is part of our “Inclusion” series where we invite anyone who may not feel comfortable using these tools to join us in the metal or wood shop (or both!), learn some new skills, and meet other people who are also new to this! All of our instructors for this series are prepared for complete beginners, we hope you will join us!
Please wear all natural fibers (like cotton; we recommend jeans and a t-shirt/sweatshirt) close-toed shoes, full length pants, and no loose/dangly garments or jewelry. We recommend bringing a natural fiber jacket in case you get chilly, as we may open the door for more ventilation. We also suggest bringing a water bottle! Otherwise, just bring yourself and be ready to have a good time!
Age 16+, under 18 MUST be accompanied by a guardian.
Your instructor, Jaime Maginnis, has years of practice with welding. He enjoys indulging others’ curiousity in metal, and we are so glad he agreed to teach with us! Our President and Director, Lucy and Linore, as well as donor match Mark got to be his guinea pigs to nail down the class flow and it was a blast!
