 Working with steel is quickly becoming virtually a prerequisite for employment at many scene shops around the country. The techniques of this incredibly versatile and useful skill transfer easily to industries besides technical theatre, and its applications are widespread indeed.
This workshop does not assume any prior knowledge of steelworking. However, given the fact that steelworking is easy to learn impossible to improve without real-world practice time, this workshop is also tremendously useful for those who wish to hone their skills. Our experienced instructors will provide instruction, suggestions and techniques rooted in years of actual practice.
All work will be done with gas wire-feed MIG welders, and the material used will be 16ga and 18ga steel. All materials, tools and safety equipment will be provided.

Price: $80
