Introduction to Welding


Joining metal with heat is an age-old fabrication process. In this introductory workshop, students will learn two basic welding techniques: oxy-acetylene welding, and metal inert gas (MIG) welding as well as how the two can be used in conjunction. With an emphasis on proper setup and safety, students will use these techniques to create an individual piece to take home. All tools and supplies included in lab fee. Students must wear closed-toe, real leather shoes and 100% cotton clothing (i.e. jeans, t-shirt, bandana, and a long-sleeve button down shirt) and no synthetic materials. It is recommended that students bring a respirator to wear while working; inexpensive ones can be found at most hardware stores.
