About

Refine and practice what you learned in MIG #1.  

This class will focus on how to perform different kinds of welds — butt, lap, “T,” corner, and edge. The goal is for you to feel comfortable operating the welding machine and know how the MIG welding process works in performing different welds. You'll progress to welded pieces and/or a simple project at the discretion of the instructor.

Safety, welding theory, and materials will be reviewed.

Details

  • This class is limited to four students to provide one-on-one learning and direct mentoring.
  • BARN will provide personal protection equipment.
  • The higher price of this class is due to the difference in compensation to professionals with expertise above BARN's layperson welding instructors.

Materials

 A $20 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all materials needed for class.

Prerequisites

You must have completed MIG Welding #1 or the equivalent (confirm equivalency by writing to metal.lead@bainbridgebarn.org)

Erin Munter

Erin Munter grew up on Bainbridge Island and moved to Oakland, Calif., in her 20s to attend the welding program at Laney College. After interning and volunteering at the metal arts school The Crucible, she returned to Bainbridge and began making furniture bases and other fabrication for Coyote Woodshop. She worked at another fabricating shop and taught welding to youth. She now does fabrication work all over Kitsap County. Her passion is everything welded including large and small indoor and outdoor household items. Her sculptures can be seen in local art shows.
