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 basic stick and mig welding of mild steel, on both older and new style machines. You 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

*Pregnant women should not be attempting electric welding

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

  • Welders and consumables

  • Steel off cuts to practice on

  • Welding helmets and gloves are provided


What to bring

  • Students must wear solid, rubber-soled, leather work boots, preferably steel-toed (please no sport shoes!)

  • Please wear 100 per cent cotton collared long sleeve shirts and 100 per cent cotton long trousers as sparks can cause synthetic clothes to burn

Phil Warnecke


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.
