I teach welding, shop skills and knife making on weekends to individuals or small groups in my Renton, Washington shop, where I can accommodate up to 5 students, or on location.
Some common subject areas:
Price is very reasonable. Hourly rates are negotiable based on number of people, location and amount of material to be covered.
I recommend starting with a 4-hour class.
I have been working metal since age 14 when I took my first Blacksmithing class. I attended Gunsmithing and Welding schools, then graduated from Purdue with a degree in Theatre, and spent 11 years as a union stagehand — at Purdue, in San Francisco, and finally in Seattle. I was a welding instructor for 16 years across four schools. I have been a Certified Welding Inspector for 11 years and now work as a third party building inspector in the greater Seattle area.
Areas of focus: brewery equipment, marine equipment, cast iron repair, aluminum welding, stainless steel, railings, countertops, bronze and copper work, and knife making.
