Maria McCann reviewed: Metalwork Craft weekend with The Iron Lady

"Amazing weekend! Natalie is so knowledgeable and patient. Loved trying out TiG, MiG, blacksmithing and plasma cutting. Definitely going to do more! Thanks to Natalie and George for a fabulous experience. If you’re thinking about having a go - do it!"

Henry Buckeldee reviewed: Welding course: Mig, Tig, Stick, with the Iron Lady

"Excellent course. Given as much instruction as you want and then left to play. I left feeling given more practice I could achieve a good standard of TIG welding. Now planning a project so I can return. There is a lot to take in, and the final 2 hours you can choose what process you want to concentrate on. Used TIG on mild steel and stainless with good results. Up to date equipment with things like HF start on TIG, and reactive welding helmets, make it so much easier. And a final tip from Natalie on how to spot weld with TIG was so useful. She is a very passionate and supportive teacher, helps you to get it just right and succeed. Make the most of your time, and stay to the end in the immersive atmosphere."

Stuart reviewed: Metalwork Craft weekend with The Iron Lady

"This course is AMAZING. On the first day we learnt to TIG and MIG Weld, Plasma Cutting and how to use the Forge. On the second day we put our training into practise and everyone on the course made something different. With Natalie's expert tuition and boundless enthusiasm, you pick up the basics of each skill incredibly quickly; you just wouldn't believe what we all managed to create after just one day! I'm very excited to put my new-found skills into practise and will certainly return for more training when the opportunity arises. I'd thoroughly recommend this course, even if you are not that creative, you will have great time and will learn some new skills very quickly. "
