A job WELD done…

So as usual the design realisation workshops were a hive of activity today. Student are working on several productions that are currently in process which means that we have everything from a 70’s vending machine to paintings of breeze blocks scattered around the space.

I spent most of my day instructing some of the second years working in the scenic construction department how to weld. There’s a lot of metal work required for the triple bill opera and so it’s a great opportunity for students get stuck in and learn a useful new skill that is so readily utilised in the industry.  Of course you have to start small when you’re learning so the challenge for today was to make a simple square and learn some essential joints and welds as well as the terminology and science behind the process.

They did a great job and I couldn’t resist getting a few spark-filled photos. Not quite ‘Flashdance’ but you get idea.  Stay tuned for some photos of how they put these new found skills into action…on a MUCH larger scale!
