Welding classes at the Tarrant County Makerspace
We’ve designed a welding class that targets people that want to learn to weld but are not necessarily interested in welding as a career. This is a one day, 6 hour crash course that takes you from knowing nothing about welding to having the ability to weld together a small charcoal fired grill that you get to take home at the end of the day.
We’ve put together a series of videos to get you started. Eventually we will publish our own content but for now we’ve pulled some basic information from the web that is most relevant and helpful. Please view at least the first video before you come take our crash course.
Instructor: Aaron Melven – Visionary at the Tarrant County Makerspace. If you have questions feel free to call me 817-565-2165
