Why not spend Father’s Day weekend doing something special with Dad—like playing with fire and getting dirty! This workshop is similar to our Weekend Welding Workshop except that this weekend is set aside especially for fathers and their children to take the course together. Spend a weekend learning the basics of metalworking: ripping through steel with gas torches and fusing it back together with a 10,000° electrical arc! This two-day workshop will introduce students to MIG welding, the oxygen-acetylene torch, various metal saws, and the grinder. By the end of the first day you will be able to heat, cut, join, bend, and polish. On the second day you will have the full day to use your new skills creating a project to take home. Note: The price listed is per student. All participants must be at least 15 years old. No previous experience necessary—this is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time. Materials and tools will be provided.
