This class is the second of a four part series. It is the next step once students have completed the MIG Welding Part 1 or the equivalent. (Confirm equivalency with the Studio Lead at firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is a hands-on opportunity to refine and practice what was learned in MIG #1.
The class will focus on how to perform different kind of welds – butt, lap, “T”, corner, and edge. The goal at the end of the studio is to feel comfortable with the operation of the welding machine and the MIG welding process in performing different welds. Students may progress to a simple welded piece.
Instructor: Erin Munter was raised locally on the Island. In her 20's she moved to Oakland, California and attended the welding program at Laney College for 4 years. During this time she interned and volunteered at a metal arts school called The Crucible. She returned to Bainbridge Island and began doing furniture bases and other fabrication for Coyote Woodshop. Eventually she moved on to work at an Island fabricating shop as well as teach at another Kitsap area school aimed towards children's welding education. She still currently does fabrication all over Kitsap. Her passion is everything welded including large and small indoor and outdoor household amenities. She also takes part in the local art community with sculptures in local shows past and future.
