Under the guidance of a fabrication instructor, using welding, cutting, and bending techniques you’ll
make cool stuff out of metal!
We’ll have a few simple designs to choose from (chain hearts, metal letters/words, pencil holders, small
table/shelf, etc.) but you’re encouraged to peruse our diverse collection of reclaimed scrap metal to
devise your own unique design.
Prior welding experience is great; however, we will review basic MIG welding techniques, metal cutting,
grinding, as well as the basics of hand tool use and shop safety.
What to wear: At RMM, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber.
clothing (100% cotton), long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the
ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed
around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames.
Additional protective gear will be provided as needed.
About the Instructor: Stephen Charles is a former Welding Engineer with many years of experience in
production welding and custom fabrication. He has taught hundreds of beginners in the basics of
welding and fabrication. Also, he’s pretty funny, so if you don’t have a sense of humor just smile and
nod when everyone else laughs and maybe no one will notice.
