Creative metalwork and welding, scrap metal sculpture.

X

Description

Our course is completely hands-on and student-led. You will design your own project, set your own working pace, and go home with your original metalwork sculpture. The day is facilitated by my two female metalworkers with broad experience in the industry. We will coach you through technical processes, as well as offering creative guidance and inspiriation. WTF Workshops (Women Teaching Fabrication) offers a one-day intensive course, suitable for all levels of experience. Consecutive days can be booked if you'd like to do a larger or more complicated project, or if you'd like to gain a higher level of proficiency. There will be a huge variety of interesting pieces of scrap metal to choose from, most of which are included in the course price. Lamp parts, Edison bulbs and clock movements can be purchased at cost price on the day. We can also advise on equipment choices for those who really get the welding bug! We often have people return to us having set themselves up with the kit, and want extra tuition to get the results they want. Tools available include: - MIG welders - Plasma Cutter - Angle Grinders - Cold Saw - Pillar drill - Sheet Roller -Tube and bar roller - Brazing equipment - Oxy-propane torch for heat bending and cutting ...and many hand tools! Group sizes are between three and five participants to two facilitators. Apart from the teaching skills and supporting your creativity, we aim for us to all have a really enjoyable day! We hope to hear from you soon. WTF (Women Teaching Fabrication) Workshops was founded by two female artisans with a broad range of skills and experience as freelance fabricators in the Arts industry, from events, theatre, TV and film to retail display, to industrial and agricultural fabrication.
