Welding with heat produced by burning gases is one of the oldest methods of welding, dating back to ancient Greece. In this course, students will be introduced to the gas burning torch, learning to control gases and use heat to cut, braze, and weld steel. The class begins with a collection of technical exercises and finishes with a small creative project all in mild steel.
This class is a prerequisite for the CREATE Program, a way for students to use our studio space, tools, and equipment to work on individual projects.
