Did you know?

The earliest evidence of welding are hand held gold boxes which can be traced back to the Bronze Age - thats a very very *very* long time ago for those that weren't paying attention in History class, guilty?!

I gave the class to my partner as a birthday gift and he absolutely loved it. As a keen craftsman, he was so excited to try out welding and was not disappointed. The tutor leading the class was so knowledgeable and passionate about his craft, and he came home with three things he had welded! 10/10

Excellent course. A surprising amount covered in three hours. Entirely hands on combined with very good technical information. Great facilities. No improvements to suggest, highly recommended!

This was an excellent introduction to welding. Lots of hands on, practical time to get to grips with it all. Would highly recommend anyone interested in trying out welding to give it a go!

Really good. Andrew went over all types of welding. He gave us a brief safety instruction and how best to use the certain types of welders/techniques. He then let us get on with it. We had lots of scrap metal to practice on and there were lots of welders, so no one was waiting in line. I feel that I can make something now. Thanks!

Professional friendly inclusive educational workshop even for a complete novice. I even got a slow motion vid clip of me taken while using a mic welding . Andrew was attentive and left us to practise when we got the hang of it and he let me take some photos of his machinery . Would recommend for non-artists like myself.

It was a great class! Lots of fun - some confusion, as the instructor at one point said that the class was in fact 'basics of welding' and not intro for artists... Still, worth the visit.

This was an excellent course, the teacher is calm, easy to understand and very encouraging. The workshop is clean, well organised and safe with all the equipment you could need.The course starts out with instruction and quickly moves on to your own experiementation under his watchful eye.

Great class for a total beginner to welding, good balance between tutorial and letting us do out own thing: plenty of safety and background but also just enough time to play with the materials and make a couple of things to take home. Thank you!

An excellent introduction with a good tutor and gave a useful overview of welding methods. Looking forward to doing the full metal fabrication days.

Very warm and welcoming for a complete beginner. Only downside was five people sharing a welder meant not as much hands on practice as I would have liked.

Really enjoyed the course. Lauren was a very good trainer and explained everything clearly and carefully, was happy to answer questions, and go off piste when necessary. Thanks again.

I had a really great afternoon - and learnt so much in a short time. The session covered Mig, Tigg, Arc and Spot welding, grinding and finishing. A great springboard for planning future ideas and projects.

Excellent. Perfect balance of theory and hands-on with the emphasis on hands-on. Great tutor who was there when required but not looking over your shoulder all the time. Everyone left with a small creation. Thank you.

Although I do not consider myself to be an artist, I did want to have an expert-led introduction to welding for the purposes of general repairs and new-fixture building, including for a canal boat. The course delivered that very well with excellent theoretical and hands-on aspects. Welding is a practical activity and the course balanced that well with basic theory. I enjoyed the course and felt that it was very good value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone wishing to get a positive and practical start to welding, how to do it, how to fix basic issues, how to choose a welder for your needs and (not least) how to be safe.

Lauren was clear, instructive, serious when she had to be (health and safety issues) and good fun in her teaching method. I really didn't want to leave. I don't know why I left it so long to do one of your courses. Already trawling through the courses to find the next one. Many thanks, Will
