Private Lessons & Mentoring
Would you like to learn fabrication, blacksmithing, welding, or other metalwork skills? Do you have a project that needs some hands-on help?
You may want to create an art object or a tool for practical use. If you are already working on a project, you can send me a photo of your design or project. We’ll create something appropriate for your level of expertise and figure out the right approach for you. Anything is possible.
Safety orientation is the first step. You’ll need appropriate footwear. Otherwise, I will provide everything else. I am insured to teach a maximum of 2 people in my shop at a time.
The fee for private or semi-private classes is $120 per hour per student.
Need a gift for a special occasion?
Do you have young children who want to learn?
Want to take lessons as a couple?
Blacksmith training, including fabrication and welding, is available for organizations that want to upgrade their employees’ in-house industry skills. After 22 years of teaching students at UBC’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, I can easily adapt training to organizational and individual needs.
Metro Vancouver Regional District’s sewer division hired me to train their staff. We held the program in their shop and mine. My shop can accommodate two people for specialized personal attention and training.
If your business requires employee training or skills upgrading, I’ll meet with you to evaluate your needs. Once we confirm the objectives and content, I will design the training and present an overview and quote for your approval.
