Please be prepared to use light welding equipment.


Cost: $95 per person for the class cost plus $120 per person for materials. At the end of class, you may purchase the machine youve worked on for only $75!  Any machines not purchased then will be sold on Etsy and the profit will go to support Craftster.

So excited for this! And I already know how to weld, so hopefully I'll be ahead of the game.  Smiley

Wow, jungrrl, that's awesome!  I may enlist you to help out some of our less coordinated Craftsters!  We don't want any burned fingers or toes in this class.

Do we have to wear full make-up to this class?  It won't hurt my newly done acrylic nails, will it?
