What COVID-19 precautions are in place? We’ve implemented safety precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All welding and personal protection equipment has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each use. During the workshop each participant must wear welding gloves, safety glasses, and a welding hood. Please bring your own mask if you should choose to wear one while your welding hood is lifted away from your face. Social distancing must be practiced at all times. We will avoid hand shaking. Hand sanitizer and soap and water are readily available in the shop, as well as disinfectant cleaners. If a participant is ill, we ask that you do not attend the workshop. No exceptions. We will gladly reschedule your session. Same for us – if Josh were to get sick, we would reschedule the workshop. We love to share our shop space, but not germs.

What is the minimum age requirement for the workshop? Middle school students. This specific workshop is great for middle school students and parents who are wanting an introduction to welding.

What should I wear? Please wear leather or canvas boots/shoes, and a pair of jeans that cover your entire leg and ankle. You might get a little dirty from metal dust, so probably don’t wear your favorite outfit. If you need glasses please bring them. It is important that you can see under the welding hood. If you use “cheater” glasses for up-close reading, please bring those! If you have long hair, please bring a hair tie.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends? Absolutely. Just be sure to put us in contact with the person who will be taking your ticket. We will need their registration information and agreement to our safety and cancelation policies on record. 

Coming in from out of town? We’d love to pass along suggestions for local accommodations, dining, and sightseeing. We love our city and would love for you to enjoy it, too! Email for info.
