Welding for Beginners Workshop - with Ian Michael
Sunday 29 September
In this hands-on workshop, our very own Ian Michael, who is a metal sculptor and also has a certificate IV in Training and Assessment, will introduce you to the basics of welding.
You will learn to weld with a MIG and MMA (stick) welder and how to weld different types of metals.
Using these techniques you will produce your own simple artwork to take home.
Lust for Rust - A Special Effects Metallic Paint workshop - with Jane Michael
Jane Michael, an artist with a Certificate IV in training and Assessment, will show you how to apply special effects paint and use different methods to create various patinas and oxidisation effects. You will then produce your own outdoor artwork to take home. If you have a piece of your own that you would like to work on you are welcome to bring it - but it's best to check with us first to make sure it's appropriate.
All materials and equipment are supplied. Children over the age of 14 can attend. We recommend wearing older clothes on the day, as it can be a messy process!
