Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
On Saturday June 11th noon - 4pm, we will be exploring once again the powers of welding metal together with current.
Due to limited equipment the workshop will only have a small bit of one-on-one. There will be plenty of time afterwards to practice your skills.
Knowledge on torches, arc and stick will be covered, possibly some demonstration of our new TIG.
Welders should wear work or shop clothes without openings or gaps, to prevent arc light from reaching the skin. In fact, those even working close to arc welding should also wear protective clothing. Clothing should always be kept dry, including gloves. The clothing should also be 100% cotton. Some of the welding will produce strong IR/UV rays which will cause a nasty sunburn on unprotected skin. You’ve been warned.
(Note that it's not necessary to print the Eventbrite ticket, so ignore Eventbrite's instructions to do so.)
When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective in Ferndale, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The name stands for "Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire".
Supported by its members but open to guests as well, i3 Detroit's facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible. Led by volunteer instructors (mostly members), these are usually free, but may require a materials fee for participation.
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, programming, woodworking, or just hanging out.
Founded in 2009, i3 Detroit has about 70 members and funds its operation mostly through member dues. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
