**An auto-darkening welding helmet, leather welding gloves and a welding jacket are required for this class. (required items are available for purchase at IAI.)
This course is 24 hours of instruction in the introduction to ornamental welding. It will include an introduction to metal work for students with limited knowledge of welding. The course will focus on plasma cutting, GMAW (MIG) welding, forming and fabrication of linear stock, steel and “found” (recycled) metal projects. Students will make two required projects and then have a choice of creating one of five pre-designed metal art projects that they will take home.
