Class 3701 – MIG Welding for Dummies (Class 3701)

Ever wondered about learning to weld? Want to impress your friends, your older brother and that cute bartender? It’s easier than you think! In three evenings you will learn how to lay a bead, and handle all sorts of sharp and dangerous tools. You will be able to complete a small project and leave with lots of ideas and know-how for other projects. This class will teach you the basics of welding, metal work and design, joining, bending and finishing. And you will get dirty! Limit 4 students (sign up early to get in!) 3 Day Class.

Class 3702- Lighting Solutions (Class 3702)

This class will bring some serious color to your life and brighten up your living space. This is the perfect way to use glass in a most practical application: a lamp. You will design your own colored glass, determine your own shape, and have your choice of several different hanging or mounting options. For considerably less than the price of a designer fixture, you can put your own name on it.  Tuition includes glass, mold materials, and mounting hardware. No glass experience is needed, and electrical experience will be provided.
