Welding 101

6:00p.m. to 9:00p.m.
Pyramid Metalworks
1000 Parker St
Vancouver CA

(Due to popular demand - a Trade School Vancouver repeat!) This is by no means a comprehensive class on this incredibly wide and diverse subject, rather a crash course where you learn safety, theory, and have a chance to get dirty and try it out. This class will cover the basics of stick welding and MIG welding. As there can only be 3-4 people welding at any one time, there will be plenty of time to ask any questions you might have.

Bring one of the following:
Blues records (Mississippi Records compilations)
Electrician who can help wire up equipment in my shop (I buy the parts)
Road or track bicycle parts
Trade hours for hours (do you have a CNC router? Let's talk!)

About the teacher, Henry Norris

I'm the owner/operator of a small metal fabrication shop. I specialize in furniture, architectural details, and metal finishing. I'm a ticketed welder and I have ~6 years of experience in the trades. By no means a master, but I'm happy to share what I know.

The Hive
128 West Hastings St.

This will be an introduction to basic concepts behind saving and investing, from a financial planning perspective. This is a great class for people who are brand new to the concepts. Don't know the difference between a stock and a bond? Between a registered or non-registered account? This is the class for you. This will run around 2 hours depending on how many people attend and how many questions you have!

Bring one of the following:
Doggy poop bags
Non-perishable items for the food bank
Tassimo coffee
Used towels or blankets to donate to animal shelters
