    Develop fundamental skills in creating and repairing metal objects under the instruction of Stephen Charles. This introductory class includes a crash course in the MIG welding process, metal cutting, grinding, as well as the basics of hand tool use and shop safety.

    Students will leave with a wide familiarity of skills and studio techniques.

    NOTE: This class is a pre-requisite for the Project-Based Metalcraft class.


    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 there will be many moments of awkward silence.

    TIG welding is most commonly used to weld thin sections of stainless steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper alloys. The process grants the operator greater control over the weld than competing processes such as MIG welding, allowing for stronger, higher quality welds. Students will have the opportunity to learn the basic techniques of the TIG process and practice with feedback from an expert.
