The first week of welding workshops is underway and it’s been great to get some of you in and see the progress you were able to make in one day.

We had a father and daughter in, Jon and Bronte, for a beginners welding workshop. They had no prior welding experience and by the end of the day they were able to set the machine parameters and lay down some nice looking welds. They had no trouble assembling the Urchfab dice kit and Bronte proved to be a natural on the tig.

We also had Jan and Leon in for a 1-2-1 workshop, Jan spent his session focusing on mig and left with a clear understanding of fine tuning the machine and Leon did a mixture of mig, DC tig and AC tig and spent his session working on techniques and machine settings.

We are nearly fully booked for June but there are still a few dates left towards the end of the month, you can see those dates here.

Dates will vary from month to month and we appreciate that not everyone can attend during working hours so we do have a limited number of evening and Sunday slots available. Please get in touch for more info on this.

You can read about what is included in the courses on the welding workshops page here, so if you aren’t sure which welding workshop is right for you then that is the best place to start. The beginner and MIG / TIG specific courses are both very practical and hands on and you will get to assemble your own Urchfab dice kit which will be yours to take home at the end of the day. The 1-2-1 courses are your chance to work on your weaknesses and focus on any areas you want specific help with.
