Metal Sculpture Workshop for 1-3 people (1 or 2 Days)



A day or two days working with the metalworking and welding techniques that Philip uses when fabricating and making his metal sculptures. This course is offered as a one on one session, or for two to three people to attend - this could be for friends, a couple, or small family (aged 11 and over) The full day workshop will focus on the skills needed to cut, manipulate and join steel, then use these skills to make your own metal artwork to take home. This could be a wall sculpture cut from steel and decorated with welding and finishing techniques, or a simple 3d free-standing sculpture. The 2 day course will allow you to create a larger or more complex design, and you will be able to learn and play with more of the welding and forming processes. Please note that 2 day courses need to be booked as 2 x one day courses, and won't always run on consecutive days. Philip is available to run his courses on Mondays, Thursdays and sometimes other weekdays. If you have ideas for something you would like to make you are welcome to contact Philip to discuss these ahead of time. You will be introduced to a variety of tools and equipment including: ● Metal cutting saws ● Angle grinders ● Metal benders and rollers ● MIG welding (TIG/MMA welding processes are available but for short courses MIG is recommended) ● Oxyacetylene cutting and heating ● Forge and anvil ● Metal finishing Get ready for hot metal, sparks and metal wrangling!
