18-19th of June, 2016 GEEK PICNIC 2016 festival was held in Moscow. More than 50 000 people visited the event during those 2 days. The festival program was called “Legend crushers”. Five zones were arranged, among them – technology, science, arts, bloggers’ zone, and the main stage. Each zone had a lecture hall, master class area, and various installations.
WeldQueenStudio team gave public welding master classes in “Technologies” area and destroyed some legends about welding.
Anyone could get theoretical knowledge on welding and even apply it right away in practice welding masterpieces of their own. Welding became accessible to anyone from 6 to 78, regardless sex, field of work and even health limitations!
The guests of the festival, under the guidance of welding superheroes, welded “Starts from heaven”, various animals, names, shapes, pen and phone stands, and also presents for friends and family.
Professional welders, participants of “Welding volunteering” program participants, those who make welding accessible and understandable.
Unusual welding cloaks in addition to protective welding suits were created to the sketches made by WeldQueen. Visitors noticed that comparing welders with superheroes is very unusual but it really correlates with the value of the profession, its importance and complexity.
More than two hundred visitors of the Festival took part in the welding master classes. They were surprised and delighted stating that “welding is so magical”. The myth about the fact that welding is complicated and dirty was destroyed. Visitors added that these master classes reveal the world of welding to people of other professions and give the opportunity to express oneself from a creative point of view!
Master classes were held in cooperation with “Kemppi Rossiya”, “Kedr”, “Liga Svarki” and “Esab” companies.
