Basic Welding Workshops
Dan our resident crazy scientist will show you the ins and outs of welding. The workshop will be run over four weeks, starting on Saturday, 4 May and the last session on 25 May. It will cover all of the basics you need to know about how to use the machinery safely, learning technique and arc control. Places are limited so get in first. You will need to provide your own gloves and if you have any heavy gauge steel to practise on, bring that too. Make sure you are dressed correctly for the workshop; you will need a cotton or wool long sleeve shirt, heavy duty trousers (denim is fine) and leather shoes/boots.
Workshops start at 1pm and will take place at the East Gippsland MakerSpace, 25 Morgan Street, Bairnsdale.
Cost: Per session – MakerSpace Members $30 ***** Members of the public $45
