This project-based class will help introduce a few tools and processes in the metal shop, sparking your learning and creativity! Using various types of mild steel, students freely build a sculptural lamp base of their own design. Through this they use a few necessary tools including MIG welding, a great beginner welding method that is fast and strong. Also covered is basic electrical wiring for small non-grounded appliances. At the end of this 4 hour class, students can bring home their creation to light up their world!
This class will not delve into the intricacies of welding but will help beginners get an idea of what is possible with limited tools, materials, and time. Additional instruction around processes in the metal shop can be found in our Intro to Metals and MIG Welding Basics courses.
ADX provides all tools, materials, consumables, and safety gear. Tools introduced in this class are:
***DO NOT WEAR CLOTHES OF SYNTHETIC FIBERS TO CLASSES IN THE METAL SHOP. NATURAL FIBERS ONLY***
No experience required! This is a great first class in metal where the instructor will assist you through a simple project – a great way to break the ice!
