Our Welding Craft Area is equipped with both MIG and TIG welders, and we offer additional classes in sculptural metalworking.

See the classes page on our main site for class listings.


Hazards and Safety

Be aware that arc flash, flying sparks and debris may happen at any time in the welding area.

Safety glasses, long pants, gloves, and closed toed shoes are required safety equipment. You may also be interested in providing your own welding gloves.

Safety-wise, make sure your gloves (and, for that matter, all your skin and clothing) remain dry. This is a much bigger factor than glove leather thickness in mitigating electrical shock hazard. (Also, shock hazard is less of a concern with MIG than with TIG or stick.)

  • Clear any trip hazards
  • Leave the most open floor space possible
  • Don't leave your projects unattended. Unattended metal will go in the scrap bin.
