John Barber’s upcoming welding classes

Upcoming welding classes in Houston, Texas scheduled for Fall, 2013

I’m back from my own welding class with Lincoln Welding in Cleveland, Ohio.  And, yes, I visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while there.  So I have new stories to tell in my classes, but you need to sign up first.  So here’s the classes I offer through Leisure Learning:

Basic Welding for Beginners – 1 Saturday, Noon – 5PM (listed under the Home Improvements tab).  This class is for anyone wanting to learn to weld, be it for basic repair of any kind, fence work, auto restoration, or creating works of art. 

August 10, August 24, September 7, September 21, October 12, October 26

Basic Welding for Women – 1 Saturday, Noon – 5PM (listed under the Home Improvements tab)

September 28

Art Welding: Create Your Own Metal Fish Artwork – 2 Tues and 2 Thurs, 7PM-9PM (listed under the Arts & Crafts tab).  This is a project class in which you complete a fish sculpture.

September 10, 24, 17, 19 or October 8, 10, 15, 17

All these classes fill quickly, so if you don’t want to get stuck on a waiting list, sign up ASAP.  I look forward to seeing you.

    • Hello Stacy, I do teach private classes on a limited basis. I prefer to screen people through my regular welding class. Also, I have been working on the content of that class for seventeen years and it is a rich trove of practical information that you would benefit from.Are you having trouble scheduling a Saturday Class?
      Let me know how I can help you.

  1. Hi John,

    I’m interested in taking a welding class. Being female, would I get the same experience whether or not I took the class specifically for women? I work mostly with guys, and I don’t want to miss out on learning anything the guys are going to be learning. I guess what I’m asking is, how exactly is the women’s class different from the general class?

    Thanks – Genevieve

    • Thank you for your interest in my class. Both classes are structured the same. The reason we separated the two was that we felt that some women might feel constrained in a mostly male environment.our usual ratio is about 5 to 2. My experience with this format so far has been that some women are more relaxed and feel more comfortable asking question when surrounded by their peers. I have also found that women have different approaches to welding than men do, and sometimes they are reluctant to voice their opinions in a room full of men they have just met. If you are comfortable in a mostly male environment, and a lot of women are, choose either class. I look forward to meeting you sometime soon.
      John B.
