Cheryl & Mark reviewed: One day welding course for two people

"What a fabulous one day course! Julian is a great teacher and sets a nice relaxed but steady pace. There's so much to learn and he covers everything in detail, answering questions along the way. We both came away being able to weld, with lots of advice given for a particular motorbike repair Mark is going to make. Julian is a great guy, and we'd 100% recommend this course to anyone looking to learn / improve upon their welding technique. Thanks Julian, I'm sure we'll see you again!"

Natasha Hall reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"I absolutely loved this course. Julian was a great teacher who was able to explain all the different techniques in a simplified manner. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge with welding and blacksmithing and I was able to do a lot of practising using MIG weld. I'm really happy I was able to do this course and I hope to do it again. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to try welding first-hand. You won't be disappointed."

"Thanks Natasha for your great review. You were an excellent student , picking up the techniques really well. Attention to detail and a good level of craft. It would be good to follow this initial training with a project, putting your new skills into practice. Any thoughts ? Best Regards,Julian"

Dave reviewed: One day welding course for two people

"Two of us attended this one day course, a friend who'd done a small amount of welding with not very satisfactory results and me a complete novice. Brilliant day, Julian is a very knowledgeable chap and he spent a long time with us well over the the allotted time. Lots of hands on practice as well as coaching. We feel confident to now go on and practice further as well as starting repairs/fabrication with our own kit. Can't recommend this highly enough to anyone wanting to get started with welding."

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thank you Dave for your review. Both of you did really well and understand how to achieve a good strong weld. Good luck with your projects, and remember if there is anything you need to speak to me about then please don't hesitate to get in touch. Regards, Julian"

Eren. O reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"Great value for money course and a great teacher. Was willing to work with me and make the course relevant to my needs and desire to do welding work on my van. Highly knowledgeable and very experienced. Went out of the way to show me what to do and did not rush the learning - but also did not hold back on pushing me to do better either - best of both worlds. I'd genuinely recommend this course to anyone looking to learn welding. Probably would get more hands on experience doing this than a "Pro Welding" Course. Thank you for your support and I look forward to the future. "

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thank you Eren for your great review. I am really happy to know the course has worked for you. It's no problem if you need to get in touch about the welding or machinery , or come back for another session sometime. It was a pleasure to meet you and give you this training. Best Regards, Julian"

Highly recommended. "

Val reviewed: One day welding course for two people

"Wonderful, fully hands-on course with very close supervision. Testing loads of welding parameters and geometrical situations giving me a good feel for what a good weld is. Great course which did not finish till fully satisfied. "

Alf Sprogis reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"This course exceeded my expectations by far. Julian is an excellent tutor and definitely knows his craft. Great discussions throughout the day with more than enough "hands-on". Because my engineering apprenticeship was in aircraft engineering we were never taught to weld. I have taught myself over the years to basically "stick" metal together (badly) but managed to get by. After spending the day with Julian I now have a good understanding of the "science" behind what happens when we weld. Plus the practical skills to carry out the task and how to adjust the technique for different orientations. I strongly recommend this course to anyone seeking a condensed course that will end with the ability to do basic fabrication or vehicle repair. I'm sure now all I need is to practice what I've learned to perfect my techniques. Thanks for a great day. I'm sure once I've had some practice I'll be booking another course with Julian to further upskill. "

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thank you Alf for your review. Pleased you found the course so helpful and informative. It was really good to meet you and hear about your engineering and technical work. I am really happy to have such good feedback from a person with such technical wealth and knowledge. Good to meet you. Regards, Julian"

Al Hartley reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"Amazing!!! Best course I have done in a long time , Julian is a master of his trade and a fantastic teacher, excellent approach to learning and flexible too. He is very easy to converse with and has a wealth of knowledge in many areas; I was able to leave not only with the skills I required but also a deeper subject as a whole. I cannot recommend this man and his courses enough. "

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thank you Al for your great feedback review. You really picked up the welding skills and I am sure you won't have any problems. If you need to ask any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Good luck with your future projects and cabin build. Regards, Julian"

Ash Higgins reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"Julian is a lovely man, such a wealth of knowledge and his sole aim is to pass on that wisdom to his students. I found the theory and demonstrations hugely helpful to understand the core concepts and once I was ready Julian was patient enough to allow me several attempts to perfect the weld. His methods for teaching are second to none, whether it be MIG OR stick, and whatever you are expecting to gain from this course, by the end of the day you will have achieved your goals. Thank you Julian for a genuinely fantastic day, you have dispelled myths, grown my confidence and furnished me with a sound understanding of what it is to weld. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to fundamentally understand and then apply knowledge of welding in a practical setting. "

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thankyou Ash, I am really happy that you found the instruction so comprehensive. Come back to me if you need any advice on welding or any machines that you fancy buying.Good luck with your projects. Many thanks,Julian"

Jonathan Anderson reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"This was a fantastic course; I've been interested in learning to weld for a while and this course covered everything one would need. I was primarily interested in MiG welding but Julian was extremely experienced and knowledgeable of the other varieties, and explained all their applications. The different welding techniques were covered with lots of hands on practice and examples of when it would be appropriate to use each one. I left wanting to do more at home!"

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Hi Jonathan, Thankyou for your review. I am pleased you had a good day, and very happy with your new welding skill . Good luck with your projects, I'm sure you will manage just fine.

Jimmy h reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"Julian is a super nice friendly guy. He took me through the theory behind welding, different joints and positioning techniques. The day flew by and I learned so much. By the end of the day I could feel my welding capabilities had improved, as well as my general knowledge of the practice. Great workshop and space to be working in. It was a pleasure to be taught by this artist. Bring a notebook! You will have plenty to write down!"

Andrew Crook reviewed: One day welding course: an introduction

"A thorough and well taught introduction to MIG welding techniques. Julian taught with patience, an attention to detail and in an easy to understand manner. He also offered practical tips on equipment and ways to make the welding easier or to reduce cleanup. Thoroughly recommended. Thanks Julian!"

Julian Wadsworth - Artist Blacksmith responded:

"Thankyou Andrew for your review. We really did crack on and I am happy with the amount of welding and techniques we covered. When you get your welding machine there will be no stopping you! Come back to me if you have any little issues or snags. Apart from the machines I recommended to you, I do have someone coming in for a day mid December with a welding set I've never tried , and I could give you some feedback on this if you like if you haven't bought one by then. A good day had and nice to meet you. Julian"
