Spend a weekend learning the basics of mild steel fabrication, equipment repair and project building specific for farmers and farm needs. This two-day workshop will introduce students to MIG welding, stick-welding, the oxygen-acetylene torch, various metal saws, cold and hot bending, and using 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 or to the farm. For practical hands-on experience, students are encouraged to bring pictures of specific issues they’d like to address, or bring components in that need to be welded or repaired. No previous experience necessary—this is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time. Materials and tools will be provided.
