    No welding or metal working experience required! This 2-day course (Saturdays 22 and 29 June 2024) is ideal for artists, hobbyists, gardeners or anyone wanting to get a feel for what’s involved in making something from mild steel. In this course, you will be introduced to:

    · Preparing mild steel for a project - cutting, bending, rolling, drilling and grinding
    · MIG welding techniques, including tacking a piece together and running a weld bead
    · Steel clean up and finishing

    Some familiarity with tools and workshops/sheds is useful, but not essential.

    You will apply your learning as you construct either a fire pit or pot plant holder .

    What to bring: Yourself. All tools, materials and safety equipment are included in the registration. Morning Tea (tea, coffee and biscuits) is provided. BYO lunch.

    What to wear: long pants, a long-sleeved shirt (no synthetic materials, please!) and sturdy closed-in boots or shoes.
