Electrics Workshop

19 April @ 10:00 am - 20 April @ 5:00 pm


Following the success and fantastic feedback from participants on the workshops in September, November, January and March, old school technician Stefan Hintsches is running it again on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th April for everybody who uses electricity as part of their work and wants to get a better understanding of it – no previous experience required.

Do you want to run cables like a pro, get to know all types of plugs and sockets, be able to talk the talk and work out how much power you need? Learn to calculate your consumption (and costs) and get an insight into the fascinating world of outdoor electrics.

This one-day workshop was originally designed for crew members of a travelling circus and is aiming to bridge the gap between consumers and providers of electricity, so that people from all different backgrounds can:

  • Understand basic electrical terminology.
  • Make calculations for power consumption.
  • Identify commonly used connectors and understand their qualities and limitations.
  • Spot frequently occurring faults on them.
  • Identify circuit breakers and understand their function.
  • Understand the correct rigging and installation of cables and connectors.
  • Use basic diagnostic tools.
  • Work safely around electricity.

“The workshop is great for absolute beginners, as well as those with a level of site electric knowledge. I really enjoyed the structure of the course and the use of analogies to break down difficult subject material.”
Sorelle, Production Manager, Revel Puck Circus

Cost for the workshop is £30 for unwaged/benefits and £50 for employed. If you’d like to take part, please visit Our Workshops page to book, informing Stefan which date you prefer.
