Learn safe, effective welding techniques and use oxy-acetylene and MIG welding equipment under the direction of our experienced tutor.

This introductory course is suitable for beginners and those with some experience of welding.  Students will leave the course with knowledge of the materials and processes used to make outdoor furniture and sculptures. All costs (gas, rods and equipment) are included in the registration fee.

Please note: Students will work on their own project.  Metal/materials for individual student projects are not included in the course fee and are required to complete the course.  In the first lesson new participants will complete a safety briefing and discuss their projects with the tutor. Take measurements and/or find pictures of items you would like to make.You will NOT need to bring anything for the first lesson, except for an outline of the beginner’s project you would like to complete.

If you have your own safety glasses and ear muffs, plesae bring them to the class.
