Workshop: Women’s Welding
August 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Register on Eventbrite to reserve your spot!
This introduction to welding is women and women-identifying focused. You’ll learn some basics of welding and working with metal, including safety.
Please wear jeans and an all cotton long-sleeve shirt. Your skin must be covered so that you don’t get burned. Leather shoes will protect your feet properly. We have helments and other safety gear.
Why women’s welding? Very often, women are more likely to engage with tools if they are in a gender-isolated class setting. We’ve seen mostly men in all of our welding classes, and this one is designed to be more welcoming to those who wouldn’t ordinarily find themselves in a metal shop. It may move at a different pace or cater to the attendees in a way they’re a bit more comfortable with.
