Learn to build and repair tubular steel frames with a MIG welder! Experienced welders and novices alike have the opportunity to learn and practice welding tubular steel, both painted and galvanised. Also included is an introduction to techniques and tricks of the trade needed to construct in tubular steel, so you can start planning your own projects for furniture, gates, railings, or repairing the trailer etc.

As with the previous welding classes you'll be instructed on types of welders and their uses before specifically focusing on the versatile MIG welder. We'll compare gas vs. gasless set-ups, learn about different metals, types of welds and problem troubleshooting. Step by step we'll explore how to prepare a space, and yourself, for safe and effective welding.

There will be plenty of hands-on-tools action to practice your welding skills as well as steel grinding and sanding. All this while creating your own square tubular steel plant stand.

This class is a little more advanced than the Welding Introduction class and would suit someone interested in improving their skills specifically for steel framework construction and repair.

Your tutor, Nyree, is a metal artisan/ fabricator with over 30 years metalworking experience.

No previous metalworking experience required; however, this class accommodates learners of differing skill levels.

Tutor Profile:

Nyree Smith

Smithing and metalwork have been my career and passion for 30 years, 22 of them with my own business. I apply an artisan philosophy and application to my work, and have won awards from the Australia Council for the Arts, George Alexander Foundation and the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. These have enabled me to gain further specialised training in contemporary and ancient metalworking techniques. It is a dream of mine to make the world of metalwork more accessible and interesting to other women, to have others feel what it’s like to construct and create with this infinitely malleable material, the possibilities are endless and the feeling is empowering and inspiring.
