Drawing with Steel with London Sculpture Workshop
The aim of this 2-day course is that you can explore new ways of conceiving sculpture and drawing. We will explore the space, the volume and different types of lines from a new perspective, considering the light, shadows and interstices between the lines as part of the work as well. The course will cover the techniques of bending, cutting, grinding, rolling & shaping steel rods. It will cover MIG welding for beginners and advanced. Students will work on individual sculpture/s or projects. If you don’t have a project yet, no worries, we will discuss and give shape to your ideas. Small group numbers allows 1:1 tuition for participants on this course.
