I went on Natalie's - Stick,Tig,Mig - welding course to learn about the different welding machines and to get some experience of welding. The course was fantastic and I enjoyed every second of it. I ended the day having gained some understanding of welding techniques and how to use the different types of welding machines. Natalie was so helpful and explained everything before we were let loose in her welding booths and she gives you tuition throughout the day. This is a very good beginners course and I recommend it to anyone who wants to know something of the world of welding.
Natalie’s experience and enthusiasm for everything metal shows through, add to that the ability and patience to teach results in a thoroughly and enjoyable introductory course for beginners. I would highly recommend Natalie to anybody either looking to get involved with metal for the first time or seeking to improve their knowledge. I will certainly be keen to visit again to learn more.

This was the second course run by Natalie I have attended. Both were absolutely brilliant. She is an excellent instructor and really knows her metal work and welding. She has a great set up in her workshop, with individual bays each having air extraction and other safety features. I learned much more than I expected on both courses. From the Saturday welding day I felt I learned how to use a variety of welding methods effectively and safely to make joints in a variety of metals.
Very highly recommended.
What a brilliant day. I had no prior knowledge of welding. I got to try out MIG, TIG and Stick welding of mild steel and stainless steel. Natalie is a great instructor, down to earth and encouraging. She has individual bays for safety. The course exceeded my expectations and I feel confident enough to attempt small DIY projects.
A great one day course to give you a taster. Natalie explains each different type of welding and then demonstrates. With her help and support you then get to do it yourself. You are encouraged to practice and experiment. When something goes wrong or you have questions Natalie is there to offer encouragement and advice. I've now learnt enough to go away and practice at home.
All very impressive. Left the course feeling I can weld safely, and know what to look into in order to improve in the future.
Natalie was an excellent teacher. She made you feel comfortable and at easy with welding. It can be a daunting course if not done before, but she always made you at ease and answered any questions you had. Totally recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn Welding.
Awesome course, covered all the key metalwork skills in a really short time. There is so much to learn and the course gives you the opportunity to explore where you want to go and go for it. Natalie is a really natural instructor. Shows you the core steps and then observes your broader skill level to see where you need help, but if you don't need it, she lets you crack on until you do need it. Not only did I come away with my first ever metal sculpture but have the confidence to crack on at home with my kit car build with a solid of skills to employ. Thanks again Natalie.
This 1 day course was amazing. I am a complete beginner and had some sight issues but Natalie was understanding and helped me overcome this problem. Natalie's enthusiasm and knowledge is infectious. She makes the day fun, teaches you all you need to know about safety, and how to use the equipment. Once you begin to learn to weld then its practice, practice and more practice.
The course is a great insight into welding and I would strongly recommend this course. 10 out 10, 5 stars and Natalie is a great teacher. Thank you so much Natalie. Pete
I absolutely loved the two day taster course. I was looking forward to it so much and it surpassed all my expectations!
Natalie was a brilliant teacher with huge patience, enthusiasm and skill! We had a chance to use lots of different techniques and came away with a finished piece. Natalie and her team were really welcoming and encouraging, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is tempted to give metal working a go, inspirational stuff! Thanks so much!
What a fantastic day of welding I had on this course, Natalie is an unbelievable teacher that shows you so many skills in a days'course that you can then take away with you and practice practice practice. Her own skill level is immense and it’s great to watch her at work from under your welding helmet!! A course unmissable if your a complete beginner or just a bit rusty. Go and do it!!. Loved it. Thank you Natalie. Steve
I completed the TIG welding day course last Saturday not having any previous experience. Natalie is an excellant, enthusiastic and positive instructor. Oh and patient, very patient as I initially struggled to create a weld that was not full of holes. By the end of the day things were coming together well.
I would massively recommend this course for anyone wanting to learn a new skill or improve an existing one.
I have just spent a fabulous day with the Iron Lady, it flew past and was really good. We covered loads of ground and Natalie’s enthusiasm is really infectious helping everyone beginners or experienced people alike.
I heartily recommend the course...
Great course, great teacher, great way to spend two days. I learnt so much in my time in Natalie's workshop and was given plenty of time and space to explore and improve. I would highly recommend.
Natalie is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and manages to help everyone with their individual needs, interests and varied abilities, thoroughly enjoyed the two days and learnt so much, but in a very manageable way.
MIG, TIG, stick welding and blacksmithing with a finished individual project, superb.
I would definitely recommend you give it a go whatever you level of experience, brilliant.
A great day covering a wide range of techniques. Natalie was brilliant at explaining and demonstrating the necessary techniques which helped me to leave full of confidence and ready to weld some stuff!
What a brilliant course. So much to learn and Natalie is a great teacher, enthusiastic, patient and fun. I was introduced to so many new skills and with a lot of help from both Natalie and her assistant Seb, I came away with a great piece that I love. I can highly recommend this course, I want to do it all again.
I have just completed this one day course and have to say it was the best best fun I have had in ages. It is a full on day, but as well as enjoying it for the totally hands on approach, I learnt so much in such a short space of time.
Natalie has an infectious passion for her work that she passes on with a warm and easy manner. She is easy to work with and gets you doing work that seemed impossible beforehand. If you think you can't weld then Natalie will quickly prove you wrong. Many thanks Natalie for such a great experience! (TIG rules from now on).
A very enjoyable day in which Natalie covers the basics of welding. Exactly what I was looking for and would recommend it to anyone.
Very good course covering the basics with plenty of hands on work.
Natalie is very calm and forgiving and happy to keep on showing how its done.
