If you would like to book onto a welding workshop then please email us at urchfabbookings@gmail.com and we will send you the available dates and a booking form. You will then receive an invoice which will need to be paid within 24 hours to secure your place on the course.


Cancellations policy
If you need to cancel or reschedule one of our welding workshops then this must be done at least 14 days prior to your course date. Cancellations made with less than 2 weeks notice are non refundable. 

What to wear
Please make sure you are wearing full length denim jeans or heavy duty, non flammable trousers AND leather boots.

Where to stay?
We have had a few messages from people who are travelling from further away and wanting to stay somewhere locally. Urchfab HQ is in a great location, situated just 10 minutes away from the Dorset coastline, so I would suggest staying in either Lyme Regis or Charmouth as they both have lovely beaches. 

I have had family stay at Hensleigh House in Charmouth before and they had great things to say about it. If not then Air B&B have some absolutely amazing places to choose from. You could even look at some local caravan parks and make a family holiday out of your trip down here. Newland’s Holiday Park has a great swimming pool and park area for kids.

What to bring
Please bring a packed lunch and drink with you as there isn’t anywhere to buy anything nearby. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Health and Safety
You will be provided with everything you need to weld safely including safety glasses, an air fed welding mask, gloves and a welding jacket. Matt will run a quick safety briefing at the start of the day and you will be given a waiver to sign.
