If there isn't a class to suit you, please the waiting list.

If you’ve always wanted to learn electric MIG welding but have never had the opportunity, here’s your chance. Let metal Artisan / Fabricator, Nyree take you on a journey to greater independence and practical, creative empowerment through the amazing world of metalwork!

You’ll be instructed on types of welders and their uses before specifically focusing on the versatile mig welder. We’ll compare gas vs. gasless set-ups, learn about different metals, types of welds and problem troubleshooting.

Step by step we’ll explore how to prepare a space, and yourself, for safe and effective welding. There will be plenty of hands-on-tools action to practice your welding skills as well as steel grinding, filing and pop riveting. All this while creating your own pair of unique and funky gardening tools (trowel and fork).

If you’re interested in sampling this trade or exploring its creative and practical possibilities, this course is for you. This is a women's only class and requires no previous metalworking experience.

Your tutor, Nyree, is a metal artisan/ fabricator with over 30 years’ metalworking experience and she wants to take you on a journey to greater independence and practical, creative empowerment through the amazing world of metalwork!

Course testimonials:

  • Nyree has such a wealth of subject knowledge, and a gentle way of teaching. She kept us all safe and well protected and got us all across the finish line. Highly recommend this course.
  • Courses like this are not only enjoyable, they are essential and the ‘women only’ aspect was a nice change up.
  • What a fabulous day we all had! Nyree is so experienced & knowledgeable from her years of working with metal and has the ability to guide and pass on these skills. Whilst completing our welding sessions and individual metal boxes we learnt much more than welding (metal filing, angle grinding and pop riveting are just a few of our new take-home skills. Added bonus was an 'all women' session!
