BIPOC Weekend Welding Workshop (8/10-8/11)
6 in stock
**This course is intended to provide educational opportunities for those historically underrepresented and excluded from arts education, such as those who identify as black, indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC)**
Spend a weekend learning the basics of metalworking: ripping through steel with gas torches and fusing it back together with a 10,000° electrical arc! This two-day workshop will introduce students to MIG welding, the oxygen-acetylene torch, various metal saws, and 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. No previous experience necessary—this is a great opportunity to explore welding for the first time. Materials and tools will be provided.
Completion of the course should give you the skills to begin your own artistic welding exploration. These classes do not lead to certification.
BIPOC SLIDING SCALE
With support from the Papitto Opportunity Connection, we are able to offer our BIPOC-centered courses at sliding scale. All of our classes are priced such that, as a not-for-profit educational organization, we are able to cover our overhead and pay artists a living wage. These BIPOC-centered classes have a suggested price in line with our standard pricing model, but consider using these guidelines to help you pay within your ability.
