Fabrication  MIG or TIG Welding #3 is the third class in the sequence leading to use of the welding studio. The emphasis of MIG or TIG Welding #3 will be on the materials preparation, layout, clamping, and fabrication of precise welded joints.  Students will prepare a square or rectangular 90 degree frame and/or other precision welds in various positions. Studio goal is satisfaction with completion of a series of precisely welded joints.

The class is based on students' ability to safely and comfortably use hand and stationary power tools available in the welding studio for cutting, grinding, and preparing materials.

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.
