Your major project will be a BBQ Camp Stove. Also known as a Pig or Rocket stove, this portable wood stove is brilliant for baking, cooking and frying in the outdoors. They're the secret cooking tool of seasoned campers.
The BBQ Camp Stove is a great starter project for learning metalwork and welding.
Mix theory, demonstrations and plenty of hands-on time, to construct your stove. You’ll also get an option to take on an extension project, to further develop your skills to the point where you can confidently tackle your own projects.
Using the excellent equipment at Bellingen High School you will learn MIG welding, oxy and plasma cutting, lathe turning, and fabrication and construction techniques.

"Cameron was a brilliant teacher, generous of his knowledge, with the patience of Job, and nothing fazed him or was too much trouble. He taught in an easy to understand way, with humour to make the course enjoyable.
Safety was a high priority and he made sure everyone was aware of safe procedures in machine operation. An excellent person for the job. I was introduced to many new skills (for me) in metalwork, and access to high tech and expensive equipment I would not otherwise be able to buy or use."
