This two day course is an exciting opportunity to work with stainless steel. You will develop a small scale project or sculpture.
Stainless steel can be welded and machined like mild steel but has the benefit of not corroding in most environments.
This course will give you the opportunity to manipulate the material with a variety of processes including Tig and Mig welding, drilling, grinding and plasma cutting. This course will identify and demonstrate finishing processes. The different varieties of the material and its uses will also be covered.
During the 2 days you can experiment or develop a small project or sculpture. So if you have something in mind that you want to do please bring a model or drawing!
Grinding and safe workshop practice will be covered.
It is essential to wear old clothes and strong footwear.
Basic materials are included.
