Overview of Classes

TO REGISTER FOR A PARTICULAR CLASS: CLICK ON THE EVENTS TAB (Not this subfolder)

Weld Like A Girl is an empowerment project, using welding and creativity to boost self-esteem and whole-person wellness. We provide a safe space to explore the mysterious world of welding and cutting hot metal, understanding that this world may be completely foreign and many will need some guidance navigating along the way. Most classes are co-ed. So far, we have taught classes to people ranging from five to 88 years young.

OVERVIEW

  • ALL classes begin with safety! Participants will be taught about welding safety, plasma cutting and GMAW (MIG welding). Demonstrations and practice time are provided.
  • We provide a small group setting of usually no more than 8-12 people so that everyone can get the individual instruction and attention they need.
  • Most classes are co-ed. (If not, it will be ABUNDANTLY clear.)
  • We provide all safety gear including safety glasses, welding jackets, gloves and welding helmets.
    • FYI: if you already have your own safety glasses that fit you perfectly, you are welcome to bring them. Otherwise, we provide standard ANSI-approved safety glasses that are yours to take home.
  • Children are permitted to register; so far, we have taught kids as young as 5 years old but only you know how mature your child is. (If you have a mature child under the age of 7, please contact us so we can discuss the possibility of participation.) Children under the age of 14 are asked to register and participate with an adult without prior approval.
    • Exception: For the Kids’ Day Class we ask that a parent or guardian be on the premises for children under 12 years old; adults do not need to register.
  • WHAT TO WEAR: jeans, cotton t-shirt and closed-toe shoes (leather shoes or boots preferred; tennis shoes are OK; NO sandals); please ensure ankles and feet are completely covered (no shorts or capris). T-shirts or tank tops are fine as you will be wearing a welding jacket on top.
  • Water, tea and light refreshments will be provided.
  • A catered lunch is included for full-day classes.

Please call, e-mail or message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram if you are military or a 1st responder and wish to receive the discount code.

COUPLES CLASS: BOOKENDS

When you see a unique set of bookends, you usually notice that the form on one side flows into the form on the other side, despite how many books are stacked in between. Rarely do truly interesting bookends exactly match, although they are often able to operate independently. One bookend can stand alone but is stronger and more beautiful with the other half. This flow and function is similar to great relationships. One person supports and enhances the other, despite the distance between. Come join us for a day of exploring metal sculpture as you work together, independently or both on a unique set of bookends. Keeping score is not necessary. Enjoy each other’s company! No prior welding or metal cutting experience necessary. (This class is co-ed.)

FABRICATION: Desk or End Table

Make.this.desk. Seriously.

Welded steel meets stained wood in this fabulous addition to your home office or living room. Choose between a student desk or an end table… measure, use chops saws for steel and also for wood, use 4 1/2″ grinders with flap disk/cut-off wheel/grinding disk, measure again, use levels, tack table top together, weld , measure again, stain wood, measure & fit up legs, make solid welds,  smooth out rough surfaces, choose metal finish for desk/table top.  (Order glass top- if desired- from A Touch of Glass.)

HORSESHOE ART

Using a combination of welding and metal bending, participants will create a sculpture of their choice. A variety of examples will be provided for ideas; however, each person is encouraged to use their own imagination.

SEA OF CHANGE (FORGED UNDERWATER SCENE) **EXCLUSIVE CLASS!!!**

bff blacksmiths/Miller Electric experts from Iron Demon Forge (of the soon to be released Amazon TV series Underwater Empire) and Weld Like A Girl team up to help you move metal in amazing ways! During this full-day workshop, you will use a forge, oxy-fuel torch, plasma cutter (PAC) and GMAW (MIG) welding. During this unique & super fun workshop, we will create flowing, free-form shapes like that of moving kelp beds and other underwater wonders. Register soon… this class is limited to 12 participants and is expected to fill up fast! (This class is co-ed.)

 SNAPSHOT

Participants are taught how to weld a frame out of steel, in order to create something akin to a picture frame. Students are then encouraged to explore various shapes and bits of steel provided in the shop to fill in their frame and create a “snapshot” of where they are in their lives at present. No prior welding or metal cutting experience necessary. (This class is typically co-ed.)

TWISTED SISTERS BLACKSMITHING EVENT

Let’s face it… a girl’s gotta let the stress out so she doesn’t explode. What better way to relieve tension and pent-up anxiety than to smash hot steel with a hammer?

(Special goodie to sisters from the same family registering together.)

YARD ART

You’ve seen ‘em. Those giant metal flowers stuck in the ground. The rakes and garden tools transformed into animals. Rough cut sun and moon images hung on the front of houses and sheds. Desert cactus that look almost real enough not to touch. Even dragons coming up out of the earth and tractors stuck in the “mud.” And you’ve always wondered how they do that. You’ve even told yourself you’d like to try that. Well, your time is NOW. (All supplies are included; however, if you have a particular garden tool or other piece of steel/stainless steel you’d like to incorporate into your sculpture, feel free to bring it to class.)

We’ve got a variety of shovels, saw blades and other garden tools for you to choose from to create your own masterpiece!

(Examples shown include a hole cut out in the top to allow for a cactus or succulent, should you want to turn your minion into a potted plant holder.)

MAKE-A-SUCCULENT

Come create your own desert life from reclaimed steel. In this workshop you will learn to cut, measure and weld metal to create a lifelike succulent plant that can never die from under/overwatering or too much/too little sun.

While this is a co-ed class, it is meant to encourage men of all ages to try out welding. (C’mon, you know you want to.) Everyone will go home with a finished project. (Unless you are too crabby. Then you still learn mad skills. And, no, we will NOT interrupt the Yankees game. Again.)
