I’m proud to say I’ve been with the Asylum since the beginning. I love to share in the evolution of the Artisan’s Asylum: it’s culture, the people and the projects that just keep getting better. I’ve been teaching students to TIG weld continuously throughout the years. It’s a thrill for me to witness a welder’s first steps, and remember all-too-well that it’s not easy. We have fun learning together, often students will ask questions I need to ponder or research, and teaching helps me to clarify my thoughts and my purpose. On an ideal day I make steel sculptures of cute robots. I also try to keep up with all the amazing projects happening all around me. On Saturnights from April Fools to Halloween I lead the fine bicycle chopper gang known throughout the galaxy as SCUL, our motto is ‘be a superhero version of yourself.’

This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld primarily 4130 chromoly steel tubing, as well as different types of materials, shapes, and joints, and will learn how to use a range of supporting equipment (drill press, hole saws, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding.
