My work place is called Chris Metal Design. It’s located in Qormi, and every morning I take two buses to get there. Chris makes a lot of different kinds of metal frames, like balcony railings, and the work includes a lot of cutting, welding and grinding. In my first two weeks I have done all of these things.
Chris is a very hands-on teacher who will call you out if you don’t focus. He has a deep love for his work and expects us (he has another student from France) to be committed. At first it was almost intimidating but when you get to know him, he is a really nice guy.
Today Chris took me with him to install garage doors. My job was mostly to hand him tools and open/close/lift the doors. I learned a lot and it was fun to drive around Malta in a sunny day!
Here’s a couple more pictures of my work.
I think next time I talk about the things I’ve done off work on the weekends 🙂
