Soldering Skills

So you’ve decided you want to get to grips with soldering?

You’ve come to the right place! I want to show you step by step that soldering really doesn’t need to be as difficult as you think. By learning the right techniques such as torch control from the start, whilst working on fun projects, you really can build confidence and get up and running in no time at all.

We’re going to guide you step-by-step through the wonderful world of soldering as we work mindfully through exciting and unique projects. We’ll start out, as we do with everything, at the very beginning: learning the basics, and understanding the why behind the techniques by creating a chunky chain together.

We share hundreds of soldering tips and tricks in our classes. Here are just a few......

How to use a solder pick - it's a video, click the bottom left to watch!


Marriage of metal rings

Place small solder balls on the inside of the ring band, and heat from below to pull the solder into the join. This helps to avoid having excess clean up to do on the outside of the ring band.


Hoop Earrings

When soldering smaller parts to larger components, heat the metal proportionately. When soldering studs to a large hoop such as this, the flame is focused on the stud for less than a second.

These images aren’t from our class videos, they’re from the 40 to 80 page full-colour instructional guides that go along with every class.  Our classes are created to ensure no matter how you learn best, we’ve got you covered!
