    MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is the easiest kind of welding to learn and a technique with broad applications.

    This is hands-on introduction is aimed at students interested in trying MIG welding.

    The goal at the end of the class is to feel comfortable with the operation of the welding machine and the MIG welding process. The class begins with a safety briefing. There is a brief introduction to welding theory and materials. There will be approximately two hours of hands-on practice and guidance on technique (within the 2 1/2 hour class).  At the end of class, students should be able to lay down a MIG bead and to be able to identify and remedy problems with the bead.  Many students will have advanced to exploring different types of weld joints or welding different thicknesses of material.

    Students who have completed the class are eligible to participate in welding shop open studios.

    Small class size (3) provides one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped Miller 215 welder and will go through the welding set up process.

    Learn how to work with metal this summer, or build on your metal-working skills! You'll use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make a 'pet' to take home - a dog, cat, bunny, turtle, or whatever you dream up.

    In this four-day class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then you will learn how to use all the tools you'll need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.


    Next it's time for you to practice your skills and make your own unique creations with old silverware and other scrap metal parts that have been collected.

    This is a great chance to have fun and learn some new skills this summer!

    Hammer by James SchumacherIn this 3 sessions class you will learn how to make a hammer from aluminum and brass as you learn basic metal machining techniques.

    Machining operations that will be covered in the class include basic metal turning, external thread cutting, knurling, chamfering, cutting off, milling a flat on a round work piece, drilling, and tapping threads.

    The hammer, which will be yours to keep, will have a brass head and will be useful as a "positioning" hammer. If you want a hammer head other than brass that's 1¼ inch diameter, bring the material to the class.

    A materials fee of $20 is included in the class tuition.

    Before the class, students should view the following YouTube videos on how to make this type of hammer:

    In this class you’ll get an introduction into basic foundry work. You’ll learn how to make a basic mold using a provided pattern with Petrobond sand, watch the bronze being poured into the mold, and then clean up the bronze piece that you’ll then be able to take home. 

    Students must wear natural fiber clothing with long-legged pants, tight fitting long sleeves, closed toed shoes (natural fiber or leather), and have long hair tied back. Safety equipment will be provided but feel free to bring your own eye and ear protection. This class is offered in conjunction with Alchemy Industrial Arts (AIA) at their facility.

    Additional related classes BARN will be offering in 2021 are The Basics Of Metal Casting” (an online event), “Pattern Making” where you’ll learn how to make patterns that can produce a working mold, and “Intermediate Casting” where you’ll use a pattern of your own design to make the mold and cast in Bronze. An ongoing Advanced Casting (in an Open Studio format) will also be offered. Stay tuned and sign up for the Metal Fabrication newsletter to receive information when these are offered.

    Instructor Bios:

    Frank Wurden - While getting his BS Electrical Engineering degree at University of Washington, Frank also obtained a BFA degree with emphasis in life drawing, sculpting and foundry art working with green sand, CO2 sand casting, investment casting, and ceramic shell casting. Sculpture materials were clay, foam, wood, or wax for the patterns, and casting in aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. Frank says it’s been many years since actually casting, so it’s great fun to get back into it! “I totally enjoy the entire process and look forward to helping other people do the same.”

    Jeff Oens is a widely renowned sculptor with his bronze artwork exhibited in prominent art collections and public displays across the United States and Canada. Jeff is best known for his outstanding wildlife sculptures, but his portfolio also includes human figures, mythical creatures, and other diverse subjects, ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Many of Jeff’s sculptures can be seen around the industrial park on Three Tree Lane.

    Mario Oblak - Mario honed his passion for casting metal with BFA (UofW) and MFA (Rhode Island School of Design) degrees in Sculpture. Creating, designing and building in different materials and mediums is a joy, but working in liquid metal is “it” for him. Mario feels “Casting is a magical process that requires patience, skill, labor and teamwork, with the results both satisfying and permanent.” By sharing his knowledge and experience, Mario wants to help others explore, learn, and develop skills so they can see their ideas come to life.

    This class is a sequel to Introduction to MIG (Metal Inert Gas) Welding #1. The class is open to those who have completed MIG #1 or the equivalent. It may also serve as a refresher for those that have not welded in the recent past due to COVID. (Note: the A represents Amateur welder in the MIG #2A title. P would indicate Professional welder).

    The class will review the set-up process for MIG welding on a Miller 215 Welder, a safety refresher, and a review of welding theory.

    The emphasis of the class will be on technique development and practice. This is a hands-on opportunity to refine, practice and advance what was learned in MIG #1. The MIG welding class is limited to 3 participants for one-on-one learning. 

    The class will focus on how to perform different kind of welds – butt, lap, “T”, corner, gap filler, 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. The class will include welding different thicknesses of mild steel. Students may progress to a simple welded piece.

    Instructor Bios:

    Frank Wurden - While getting his BS Electrical Engineering degree at University of Washington, Frank also obtained a BFA degree with emphasis in life drawing, sculpting and foundry art working with green sand, CO2 sand casting, investment casting, and ceramic shell casting. Sculpture materials were clay, foam, wood, or wax for the patterns, and casting in aluminum, bronze and stainless steel. Frank says it’s been many years since actually casting, so it’s great fun to get back into it! “I totally enjoy the entire process and look forward to helping other people do the same.”

    Jeff Oens is a widely renowned sculptor with his bronze artwork exhibited in prominent art collections and public displays across the United States and Canada. Jeff is best known for his outstanding wildlife sculptures, but his portfolio also includes human figures, mythical creatures, and other diverse subjects, ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Many of Jeff’s sculptures can be seen around the industrial park on Three Tree Lane.

    Mario Oblak - Mario honed his passion for casting metal with BFA (UofW) and MFA (Rhode Island School of Design) degrees in Sculpture. Creating, designing and building in different materials and mediums is a joy, but working in liquid metal is “it” for him. Mario feels “Casting is a magical process that requires patience, skill, labor and teamwork, with the results both satisfying and permanent.” By sharing his knowledge and experience, Mario wants to help others explore, learn, and develop skills so they can see their ideas come to life.
