I’m pleased to announce that our own @Metal_Janet will be leading one-on-one welding workshops over the next 4 Sundays, starting this week on September 20, 2020. There will be 4 time slots available on each Sunday between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm, with 2 hours between starts.
Shared welding gloves will be provided, but participants will be required to sanitize their hands and wear disposable latex/equivalent gloves under the welding gloves. Heavy leather or steel toed work boots/shoes are required, as well as long sleeved natural fibre clothing (ideally cotton). Button up or crew-neck shirts are highly recommended. Sunscreen should be worn over the entire front side of your torso, arms, and neck, including areas that are covered by your clothing because the light from the arc will find its way through regular fabric and give you a sunburn. Long hair should be tied back. The current shop wide PPE and COVID-19 protocols are also part of the deal, so please be smart and respectful.
The cost of the workshops will be $100 which can be sent directly to Janet via e-transfer (DM her for the email address)
I will be taking care of the welding workshop scheduling, so please post in this thread expressing your interest and your preferred date/time slot. I will keep the schedule below updated, so please review it to see which time slots are still available. Priority booking will be offered to all those who helped with the welding/metal shop build out, so please mention if that applies to you. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to @3bien, @yeungx, @Thovthe, @neumannaudio, @TimothyKonrad, @jon, @rsim, and @Mathieu. Once I’ve heard from all of these folks and they have either claimed a time slot or chosen to defer for the time being, I will open up the remaining spots to any other interested members.
