You will learn how to use the MIG welder, the oxygen-acetylene torch, various metal saws, and grinders to heat, cut, join, bend, and polish steel. You will use your new skills to work on personal projects to take home with you. This is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time - No previous experience necessary. All lunches,materials, safety equipment, and tools will be provided.
After successfully completing the program, Metalheads will have access to our Open Studios free of charge for as long as they are in high school or under 18 years of age.
