Great intro to metalworking with sheet metal. Learnt to use metal marking and cutting tools and larger machines for easy trimming and bending. The fun ones for me are the spot welder, and the riveter. The teacher Andrew helped to sort out any mistakes and made sure we all finished our toolbox (I might paint mine :).
Isabelle Tracy - Feb 6, 2022
This course was excellent. The task - making a toolbox for our newly-familiar metal hand tools - involved the following skills: reading a drawing, measuring, cutting, folding, working, drilling, riveting, and spot welding. I followed it up immediately with another course to grow my confidence and familiarity with the workshop and its machinery, which worked well for me. Mine was not the most elegant toolbox that came out of the workshop, but I like the evidence of my learning it displays! Strong recommend for anyone who wants to build their skills, confidence and familiarity, ahead of freestyling their own creations.

A great one-day foundation workshop/class in metal fabrication; involving cutting, bending, drilling/punching, spot welding/pop riveting; to make a useful steel tool carrier. Mine wasn't the prettiest made that day, but it works and I learnt loads about metalworking and the value of material choice, workflow and prototyping. The instructor: Andy, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and helped me and the other students get the most out of the day.

I had a fabulous day. Andy was brilliant, patient and I learnt loads. I can't wait to return for more.

It was a great workshop. Not too many people so it was a safe space during this time. Andrew was very helpful explaining what the typical tools are and the equipment was and how it can be used. He was on hand to help out with any problems and running us through the steps in general. Very friendly and I love being able to get into making something physical by hand! Very highly recommended!

I had a brilliant day and learned loads from Andy who was a fantastic tutor. He was extremely patient with us, as we got to grips with different types of metal, new tools and metalworking machines. It was also really good to get the opportunity to complete a project in just one day. I was really proud of my new toolbox! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for an introduction to metal work.
