Girls Workshop: Welding fantasy sculptures from metal (AGE  7-12)

In these workshops at Happylab Vienna, girls from age 7 - 12 can weld together with workshop host Tatjana Schinko! The workshop will be held in German.

This workshop is just right for you if you want to create sculptures out of metal! In this safety and basic function course, our workshop host Tatjana Schinko will show you how to safely operate the MAG welding machine. After an intensive safety briefing, you will create sculptures from pre-cut sheet metal triangles that will cause surprise and pride. Of course, you can take your workpiece home with you after the workshop! Participation is free of charge! Duration: 3 hours

Workshop host Tatjana Schinko came into contact with metal for the first time during her studies of spatial and design strategies at the University of Art & Design and has not been able to get away from it since. As a social design artist, she welds - her often mobile artworks - at the makerspace GRAND GARAGE, where she hosts welding and locksmithing in the metal workshop. She regularly teaches welding classes and workshops there, and has experience in holding welding classes for kids.
