wtf one-day scrap metalwork course

Creative Metalwork and scrap sculpture

Our classic scrap metal one-day workshop.

You can make WTF you like!

(Scroll through and the Booking Calendar and look for the little dots for available dates)

 FOR PRIVATE GROUP BOOKINGS PLEASE EMAIL US DIRECTLY 

This is a one day intensive, hands-on metalwork experience, suitable for all levels of ability. We have small groups of four to six participants to two teachers, and as we have four welders you will have plenty of time to practice and play.

Ours is a really hands-on, student-led style of workshop, where everyone will choose their own project, set their own working pace, and go home having made an item of original hand made creative metal craft. Apart from the skills and creativity, we aim for us to all have a really enjoyable day!

We have mood boards to inspire your designs and help with some suggestions for anyone who has a creative block on the day. 

 

We can also advise on equipment choices for those who really get the welding bug! We often have people return to us having set themselves up with the kit, and want extra tuition to get the results they want. 

FACILITIES INCLUDE: 

MIG welders (our machines are quite sophisticated and take the stress out of learning to weld)

Plasma cutter (for free free hand cutting on sheet metal)

Angle grinders (the essential tool for cutting and sanding)

Cold saw (for neat cuts in lengths of steel)

Oxy-propane blowtorches (for brazing, heat bending, blueing)

Rollers (curving lengths or sheet steel

Pillar drill (mainly drilling holes!)

We also have many hand tools, air tools, rivet gun and hand drills. We will always do our best to find a way to make your project come together!

There will be a huge variety of interesting pieces of scrap metal to choose from, hand picked by Annie and Felix for their sculptural potential. These are all included in the price, however if you want to use larger pieces of semi precious metals like copper and brass, we ask you to make a contribution to the cost.

All the protective equipment is provided for you, as is tea, coffee and biscuits!

Lamp kits are available for £10 (plug, cable, bulb holder and a choice Edison bulbs).
