Metalwork Basics: Welding
Wed, Oct 5, 2016, 7:00 PM – Wed, Oct 26, 2016, 9:30 PM BST
Introducing the basics of welding, this evening course shows you how to use MIG and Arc Welding to make different types of welds, from fillet welds for joining right angled sections, butt welds for plate welding, and lap joints for overlapping metals. Using these three types of welds, you’ll have the opportunity to make a small metal coffee table combining all three techniques. Following on from your feedback we have now extended the course from 3 to 4 weeks.
This course is ideal for beginners and anyone keen to start working with metal. Led by our resident technician Devin Bird, who specialises in metalwork. Devin has recently put his metalwork skills to use in the installation of the touring Alexander Calder Jewellery exhibition, working for the Royal Collection Archive, and in creating the massive bronze surround at the Royalton Hotel in Manhattan, New York.
