Lucky Star Classes: Intro to Welding and Torches: Metal Rose
: : Intro to Welding and Torches: Metal Rose : :
In this class you will learn the basics of welding and torch work. We will turn a few discs into beautiful roses that you will be able to take home with you. We will use basic hand tools – a few pairs of pliers and a torch to shape the discs into a rose. For those wanting to practice their welding skills after the rose is complete there will be some metal set aside so you can practice your new skills by welding your initials into a “coupon”.
If you have a small project you would like to try, in addition to the rose and “coupon”, feel free to bring the items you would like to weld and Emily can guide you if there is extra time.
