Beginning Welding is a 3-session course; each session is 3 hours. Students will gain a core understanding of how to operate welding equipment safely and get familiar with basic techniques. This class is for hobbyists, makers or anyone wanting to try something new and challenge themselves a bit in a comfortable collaborative environment.
Check the class times shown to ensure you can make it to every session. Completion of the class includes a 30-day associate membership to Ideaworks for new members only beginning on the last day of class (see below). This entitles you to unlimited access to the Weldatorium during open hours, with emphasis towards Metal Mondays' hosted open shop nights, giving you additional time with our welding instructor. Membership has its privileges. The class fee also includes $25 materials fee.
