Welding & Plasma Cutting
with Emily Mann
Create Plasma-cut and Welded pieces for your home as you learn the basics of MIG welding and plasma cutting. You will learn to use a brake, roller, planishing hammer, shear and other amazing tools as you put together your own projects.
Learning to slice through metal like Thor and let your creativity flow like plasma as you draw your own design into sheet metal. Come with your own ideas or make suggested projects like a sconce, flower, outdoor signage, butterfly, mask, or whimsical wall hanging.
Practice running "beads" and bonding joints until comfortable and then put your skills to use making a flower, perhaps a collage of remnant metal scraps, and mounts for your other projects. Compare low and high-end welders.
Duration: 6-7+ hrs
Essentially, dependent on your attentions span. I won't let you go home with an incomplete project.
For larger projects, hourly workshop space rental is available, $32/hr.
