Welding Class Selfee

 

IMG_4838I have been wanting to learn to weld for a long time. I’d like to learn to make sculptures, metal art and functional art pieces.

Lucky me! A fella here in Houston, John Barber, offers instruction in exactly that.  I signed up through the Leisure Learning Center and took my first class yesterday.  We learned about arc welding, MIG and TIG welding, acetylene torch welding and did some cutting with a plasma metal cutter.  Lots of other pretty cool stuff too.

We start on our art project next week.  In order to learn how to weld, assemble, hammer, texture and paint, we’ll be making a big fish – complete with scales, fins and eyes.

There were three women and two men in the class.  While one of the gals was practicing her weld, I grabbed a vanity selfee.

    Not going to lie. You should show up to an argentine tango or wcs social with a welding mask. Or at least a Halloween social. I like the idea of you showing up to a random social as a welder
