On this 3-day course, no matter what your background – whether you are thinking about a sculpture or have a design idea – you will learn the basics of MIG welding, grinding, rolling, bending, cutting and good workshop practice whilst realising your ideas/project. If you don’t already have a project in mind – don’t worry! Once we get going plenty of ideas will arise & the small group size allows for 1:1 time with the tutor during the 3 days of the course. Advanced students will continue personal projects and research new techniques and processes.

What's included in the price?

1st day Morning introduction to safety practice in the workshop and the ABC of Welding. Get hands on and practice some welding. In the afternoon we will split in groups and produce a communal sculpture, experimenting with different welding scenarios. 2nd day We will discuss individual students projects, with those who already have one, and we will discuss possibilities with those that are not sure yet. The rest of the day is spent working on your projects. 3rd day Each student will be working on their own projects or/and continue with practising the welding process to gain more confidence.
