Two People - Sculpture/soldering brazing wire forming courses, specialising in insects, fairies
Please note: This is a sculpture and soldering course for two people. The £300 price covers the cost for two people. The course is suitable for beginners or experts and is bespoke to meet the student's requirements. You and the second person attending with you will experience the benefits of one-to-one style tuition which is the best way to learn. In 6 hours your soldering and brazing skills will be at a very high standard. A one person option for this course can be found via the Maker button below. Lessons are taught in my warm studio workshop equipped, with every tool you can imagine. I will be teaching students how to form wire and solder/braze together, making a range of wire insects, fairies, or anything else, it's up to you. If there is something you would like me to show you how to make, or a skill we can focus on that send a picture in advance and I will do my best to accommodate you. If you have a large project say 2 meter dragon I am able to teach you stage by stage. I will be teaching all students, I have over 30 years of experience at wire sculpture and soldering brazing and welding down to micro-level, please see pictures of some of my work. Micro insects can be taught in a few hours. bigger pieces will take longer for a beginner - please get in touch to discuss. The classes will be limited to one student per class.

I am a wire sculpture artist and teacher of my craft. I have been making wire sculpture with tin copper wire for over 30 years. Soldering skills are the key to my sculpture work. 30 years of working with heavy duty and very fine wire, enables me to make a wide range of wire sculptures from 14 gauge wire down to 36 gauge. With welding and many other fabrications skills I am able to make and teach a wide variety of sculptures in a wide variety of materials in fine detail.
