Please do not base the planning of any project, especially academic projects for examinations, on the anticipation of getting

  • Welding Training
  • Practice time
  • Access to the HackSpace welding equipment at any specific point in time


Given the single welding station and lack of trainers, we have found that best way to get initial training for new or welders or people who are coming back to welding is to go to the introductory welding sessions run by Adam at Can of Gas, Details here.

http://www.canofgas.co.uk/one_little_girl/Weld_Class.html

Once you have attended one of the courses we can then spend a little time to get you up and running on the work equipment.

The welding space can only accommodate one project at a time and its on a first-come first-served basis. There is only a limited amount of MIG welding gas provided by HS, and no Argon. You will have to provide your own gas if you want to complete any significant projects. This also includes other consumables such as electrodes, welding gloves and other protection.

The journey through this equipment will usually start with MMA or Stick for the basic skills and the move on to MIG and perhaps TIG, based on progress with the easier techniques and completed projects. Previous demonstrable experience will be taken into account.


Black Horse Workshop also offer training.

Further courses can be found here...

The care and training of this equipment is carried out by the metal working group.

Below are people who have had training on the welding equipment.


This page is used to track training sessions for the Welding equipment.

Don't create training sessions yourself, they are announced on the mailing list when posted.

Please don't ask for training sessions to be run, they happen as regularly as possible.

Details on training can be found at https://wiki.london.hackspace.org.uk/view/MMA_or_stick_welding


The welding includes use of both welding sticks, wire and gas, we will be charging £8 per person per session for consumables which will be paid into the HS account.
