Event Details


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–the bench and angle grinder, the chop saw, etc. 

MIG welding is the handy hot glue do-all kind of welding, the primary kind of welding used in making traincars, art, cranes, etc.  All sorts of people have come through Madagascar Institute knowing nothing about a shop and have become capable metal workers; get your start here. This class focuses on the hands-on experience of welding.  You will learn a little of the theory and tech behind it, but mostly you will get a feel for the manual skill of welding.

Please dress for the weather (if it's hot outside, it's hot inside!) and remember--this is a filthy, working shop. You will get dirty. Wear long pants and wear or bring long sleeves or sunscreen (ask Jim why!) We have welding gloves you can borrow but it's nice to have your own shop gloves. And NO FLIP FLOPS. But do we really have to tell you that? They are just fashion suicide. Your toes deserve to be burned off if you wear them.

The class is $50 with a $10 materials fee.
