About the Course

This one day course is designed for those with basic welding skills (or those who have attended our basic MIG welding course).

This course gives the participant an understanding and opportunity to practice welding ferrous and non-ferrous materials by means of TIG and MIG and manual metal metal arc welding.

This course may well suit artists and restorers who wish to obtain the ability to weld bronze, aluminium, cast iron, copper, stainless steel and carbon steel. The day is flexible and attendees can concentrate on one particular type if they wish to*.

If required, overnight accommodation is available in one of the Forge's shepherd huts situated in the adjacent wooded sculpture trail. The huts are self catering with a shared 'cook cabin' which contains basic cooking facilities inside and outside, gas or wood BBQs are available. If that sounds too much like hard work, there is always the local pub or take-aways a short drive away.

The huts have electricity and a wood-burner so don't worry about cool evenings, there is also a shared shower cabin. The huts costs £35 per night - you are welcome to bring your partner to stay by arrangement too. There is also plenty of room for camping if you prefer, just bring your tent!

* Please note: for attendees who solely wish to work with Bronze there will be a small additional charge because of the cost of materials.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All welding equipment and materials are provided including H&S equipment. Attendees are asked to wear warm spark proof clothing and comfortable boots. Coffee and tea is provided but please bring a packed lunch.
