About the Course

This is a wire sculpture and soldering course, half day starting at 10am finish around 2pm, suitable for beginners or experts.

I will be teaching students how to form wire and solder making a range of wire insects, fairies, or any thing else, it's up to you. If there is something you would like me to show you how to make, send a picture in advance and I will do my best to accomodate you. I will be teaching all students, I have 30 years experience at wire sculpture and soldering brazing 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 six students per class.

Went to Roger wanting to be able to form wire fairy/dragonfly wings and solder. After going through the tools and getting fmiliar with stretching/bending wires we got on to soldering.
In less than a day I manage to produce a really nice set of wings and went away with lots of ideas for things to try.
I've been back and learnt to dome copper sheet and get a bit more advaced with my soldering skills.
Roger is a patient tutor who showed me what to do , explaining why we were doing it and then letting me have a go at it until I needed him to step in and help.
Got good results and now have lots of ideas of what I could make. I also now have 5 or 6 projects on the go including a full size wire head and several different wing shapes.
Would recommend this course for anyone wanting to have a go but put off by how hard they think it is, its really not!

Roger is really friendly and accommodating. He is also very patient so it was a pleasure being taught by him all day. I learnt and did more than I expected to, and I even came home with a tiny dragonfly!! I know the basics of micro soldering after just one course and can't wait to buy my own iron and get started :)
