Welding 2: MIG (HANDS ON)
Welding is a fabrication or scuptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal
Have you ever wished you could weld? Whether you want to work with steel or aluminum you can learn the basics for both MIG and Oxygen-Acetylene from our HexLab resident expert. Also, feel free to stop by and ask for advice about a project you’ve already started. This class is intended to introduce you to the world of welding.

- Run beads
- Practice common joints (butt, corner, lap, tee, etc.)
- Group feedback on technique
- Failure analysis
- Complete a take home project
- $99 for non-members (this is a $84 class fee + $15 materials fee)
