  • Embark on a transformative 6-hour workshop hosted by metal workers Lauren and Daniela.

    The workshop will begin with a vital introduction to the fundamentals of welding, where safety takes center stage.

    Familiarise yourself with the workshop's environment, understanding the inherent dangers and mastering the art of accident prevention. Next, Lauren and Daniela will share essential knowledge of personal protective equipment (PPE) and delve into the nuances of mild, bright and stainless steel.

    Next, progress into the heart of hands-on welding practice. Guided by experienced instructors, you'll learn, observe, and immerse yourself in setting up and troubleshooting the machines. A plethora of opportunities will unfold, allowing you to engage intimately with the welding processes, receiving insightful guidance and feedback along the way.

    With a solid foundation, you'll refine your technique. From mastering the ideal angle, distance, and positions, to exploring advanced welding patterns, this course is all about precision. Next, harness the power of steel as you learn to masterfully join it using various joints, including the butt, lap, tee, and edge.

    The culmination of your day's efforts will be a strength test, ensuring the durability of your welds. Equipped with tools like the TIG and MIG welder, cold-cut saw, angle grinder and more, you'll start not with just a skill, but with the knowledge of various welding techniques.

    Metal workers

    Daniela Rubino and Lauren Wilson are experienced metalworkers and artists. Both trained at prestigious institutions: Central Saint Martins and The Slade School of Fine Art. Their combined talents in welding and fabrication led to the establishment of RubinoWilson, reflecting their deep-rooted passion and proficiency in the craft.

    Their workshop, a large and professional space, resonates with the buzz of creativity and the hum of machinery.

    Beyond their day-to-day steelworking ventures, they're also dedicated to community outreach. Through their initiative, Ore Projects, backed by Arts Council England, they offer local youths aged 16-25 the opportunity to learn metalwork. This programme not only provides valuable skills but also aims to diversify a typically male-dominated field.

    Both kind and knowledgeable, Daniela and Lauren are not just skilled steelworkers but are also mentors determined to pave the way for the next generation of steelworkers.
