Make-a-thing: Welding


This class is appropriate for both total noob and intermediate welders.

This is a non-technical completely stripped-down class. We are going to talk about safety for 15 minutes then put a MIG welder (wire-feed, or GMAW) in your hands and you will be welding!

This class is not about theory at all, our MIG welding intensive is much more informative. This class is for you to have fun while you to check welding out.

You can opt to work with scrap for no additional charge or get warmed up and purchase one of the kits at an additional cost listed below.

Prices and difficulties of the kits vary from easy to moderately challenging.

In this class, you can bring two (2) people on one class purchase. This makes it a good date night activity, you could also bring a friend or kid aged 14 and up.

Flower, Very easy

Deer head. Very easy.

Wall Dragon. Pretty easy

Blue Crab. Very easy.

Big Star. Pretty difficult. Plan on lots of grinding, this is an intermediate project.

Students 14 years old and up are welcome, but we do require that all students under 18 be accompanied by an adult.

Please wear shoes with solid uppers, not sneakers and long-sleeved cotton shirts, flammable fabrics do not mix well with welding.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule any class which is under enrolled. We refund any class which we cancel. Clients will be refunded in full for any class cancelled two weeks in advance. We do not re-schedule.


We transfer expertise from professional to enthusiast. We offer team-building exercises, welding and sculptural classes. We teach every conventional type of welding and computer numeric control of plasma cutting equipment. We can also teach fabrication, metal casting, and basic machine tool operation.

Rusty Is Radical. Great experience, great instructor! Metalwork is a lot like having super-powers! This five hour MIG welding class is designed to familiarize you with the required equipment and establish your confidence so you feel comfortable welding on your own. You will be introduced to different machines and can expect to walk out of the class ready to weld safely and independently. The workshop fee includes all shop materials and equipment; just show up.
