Description

Women Who Weld is holding an ‘Intro to MIG Welding' workshop for women on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 9am-1pm during the American Institute of Steel Construction's (AISC)'s NASCC: The Steel Conference at America's Center Convention Complex in St. Louis, MO.

Women Who Weld is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that teaches women how to weld and find employment in the welding industry.

Samantha Farr, Women Who Weld's Founder and Instructor, will lead the workshop.

We can accept a maximum of 12 women, but we will have a waitlist and will notify those on the waitlist if an opening becomes available. If you are under the age of 18, a female parent or guardian must accompany you and participate in the workshop.

Normally the cost to participate in the workshop is $100 per person, but AISC is covering the cost for all participants, so participation is free! Registration and admission to the Exhibit Hall are also offered as complimentary to the participants. Proceeds from this workshop will go toward Women Who Weld's subsidized, 6-Week Intensive Welding Training Program for unemployed and underemployed women in Detroit, MI.
