How to weld



3 hours 1 to 10 (public classes), 12 to 60 (private label $90


Ever wanted to know how to join two pieces of metal together? Create a cool sculpture or piece of furniture? Or just wanted to wear the cool mask? Welding for Beginners is for you.

Beginners learn  mig welding of mild steel, on inverter machines. The class will learn all the basic welding techniques required to work on small construction and art projects. Also, the many traps in buying your own machine will be discussed.

NOTE: Please check whether you are in the morning or afternoon session.

Morning session: 10.00am-1pm 

Afternoon session: 2-5.00pm

*If you use reading glasses, please bring them!  The welding mask makes seeing difficult without them

A handyman by trade, Phil has been welding for over 40 years, mainly cars, but also household projects like gates, fences, posts and beams. Over the years, he has taught basic welding leisure classes to novices, but the escalating prices for machines, gas, and even steel has almost stopped hobby welding courses.

New inverter technology has made the machines lighter, smaller, cheaper, and provides a more stable arc, making them easier to use. So home welding is affordable again, and Phil is leading the charge.

Very knowledgeable but at time lost his train of thoughts making the point he wanted to make come across confusing. Passionate and experienced.
He would be brilliant rather than good if he can get more structured and to the point in his explanations.
Enjoyed it and feel confident in starting welding.
When location changes, send out an email with the change! Arrived late because of it and that is no good for anybody.

The course was great and Phil was very knowledgeable. Maybe in the future everyone could have their own welder to practice on.

Phil is very knowledgeable about welding. I have reasonable theoretical knowledge and it was great to finally have a chance to try electric arc (stick) and gasless MIG welding. Fantastic!

Teacher was very knowledgeable. However the class was at a different location than listed in the confirmation email and no contact was made to let anyone know the location had changed, apart from a note taped on the roller door of original location. The new location wasn't set-up for this type of class, all students sharing one folding table that moved everytime someone used the metal brush or steel wool. We were all so close together that it made it hard to get anything done.

My husband and I did the welding class for something different to learn and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Phil was knowledgeable, interesting and practical and gave individual attention. Great teaching manner. Inspiring.
