Thank you Julian for a fantastic 2 days. The first day we spent learning how to weld and the second creating our own sculptures, which involved welding annealing and some blacksmithing. We certainly had plenty of hands on experience, which was fantastic

Two of us had an excellent day with Julian who is a really friendly and welcoming person who immediately put us at ease with the new tasks of learning the basics of welding. First we discussed what we wanted to obtain from the day then we spent a short time going over the theory of the different types of welding technologies and techniques. Then we spent a very enjoyable day with lots and lots of hands on practical training that was always explained in a clear and understandable way. We covered all the basics of MIG welding and spent a little bit of time on ARC but we both feel able now to confidently go and buy our welding machine and set to mending and making stuff. Overall a very enjoyable day and I thoroughly recommend the course. I plan to rebook for another day to cover GAS welding.

I went with a pal for a days welding course not having done any MIG welding ever before.

Had done gas welding though whilst building the ark!

It is easy once you get going and Julian is a good tutor. He makes it look very easy.

The only snag is that it just takes a lot of practice. You can not criticize that amount of time that we spent welding. Lots of hands on experience.

Would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you Julian for a great evening of learning everything I needed to know about MIG welding and more. You gave me so much information and so many skills. You fully appreciated what I want to do with my welding skills and tailored your advice to completely meet my needs. Thank you so much and I will definitely be back for more courses in the future.
