Event Details

Impress your friends, that cute bartender or your mean ol granddaddy with your tough new skill. This 3-hour introductory welding class will teach you the very basics of MIG welding and familiarize you with the tools you’ll need to finish a project.

MIG welding is the handy hot glue, do-all kind of welding--the type of machine you will most likely run into at any metal shop in the US. This class focuses on the hands-on experience of welding. You will learn the difference between mig, tic, arc and oxy acetylene, what type of shielding gas to use for MIG, why you won't get electrocuted, and how to run a bead, make a simple joint etc....a little of the theory and tech, but mostly you will get a feel for the manual skill of welding. You can take this beginning welding multiple times with different teachers and you should! What is common to every class? Welding is about practice.

All sorts of people have come thru Madagascar Institute knowing nothing about a shop and have become capable metal workers. Get your start here.

Wear jeans, long sleeves and sturdy shoes or boots. Leave your fancy nylon sneakers at home. They will get ruined and your toes may burn off. You've been warned.

Dress for the weather. If it's cold outside, it's cold inside. This is a working shop so prepare to get dirty. Class is $50 with a $10 materials fee
