Hand-Built Wind Turbine Course

With V3 Power Co-op
21st and 22nd May 2016
 
On the course we collectively build a 1.8m diameter Hugh Piggott wind turbine. All the participants spend time working on each of the three main parts of the build (wood, metal, and electronics) rotating through the different bases on the first day. On the second day we then come together as a group to assemble the machine.
 
  • Get hands-on experience and learn transferable skills in welding, wood carving, and working with magnets & resin
  • Learn how to build and install a Hugh Piggott wind turbine from scratch using basic materials
  • Experienced tutors who have been running courses building Piggott turbines since 2007
  • A practical fun course for all experience levels
 
V3 Power is a workers cooperative based in Nottingham. The turbine is a robust design that can be easily repaired, maintained and serviced and is an excellent example of appropriate technology.
 
Cost of two-day workshop: £225.
