Introduction to welding metal sculpture with Roger Russell

1.5 meter dragon fly


This is a one-to-one, one or two day course for beginners or experienced metalworkers. Welding is not hard once you have been shown, it's just practice and good lighting, and knowing where to set the amps.

The course will teach you how to weld steel and stainless steel, rod, tube and sheet material using an SWP Digi Tig 200 AC/DC Pulse welder, we will also cover brazing with a Tig welder.

I have taught many, mostly ladies how to weld in my 30 years running workshops. The best way to learn to weld is to make something, so we will be forming some metal into shapes to weld together to form a basic metal sculpture depending if you have a one or a two day course. This course is suitable for anyone thinking of buying a welder, try before you buy, advice and support is offered for anyone wanting to set up their own welding shop.

Please bring a note book to write down the important information I teach you.
