2014: Women Who Weld
Student-Led, Faculty-Guided Project - 2014
Authors: Samantha Farr
Women Who Weld, Detroit, MI. This project focused on further developing Women Who Weld, a program designed to teach women how to weld. Samantha Farr, the founder and lead instructor, recruited two women from COTS, the Coalition on Temporary Shelter, and spent a week teaching the two participants the basics of MIG welding. Farr and the participants fabricated a bus bench that is now in use on the Fenkell bus route (at Fenkell and W Parkway) in the Brightmoor section of northwest Detroit.
Samantha Farr and Women Who Weld was featured in InStyle's article, "The Badass 50: Meet the Women Who Are Changing the World."
