Learn how to safely use MIG welding equipment and get hands-on experience welding. Beginners Welcome!

You'll be taking pre-cut and formed pieces of rebar and learning how to weld them together into a butterfly! Finished size is about 29 inches tall by 10 inches wide!  Take it home and oil it up to leave natural, or paint it for some additional pizazz. 

All materials, machines and safety gear supplied and included. Class length varies as each student learns at their own pace. This workshop session is limited to 2 people, but we are offering this welding experience at other times during the day. 

IMPORTANT: Be sure to wear natural materials (no spandex, nylon, etc.) and long pants that cover your boots or close toed shoes. We'll provide the rest of the sanitized safety gear you'll need.
