Rebecca Coutts reviewed: Introduction to welded metal sculpture

"We spent 2 days with Alan in June and had a great time. As a complete beginner, he taught each technique and process in detail to quickly be able to work alone, and the equipment available to use is vast. Alan is an excellent teacher stepping in to help when needed and stepping back to watch us learn. We will definitely be returning later in the year with our son"

Peter reviewed: Introduction to welded metal sculpture

"This was an excellent course and would highly recommend to anyone looking to have a go at welding sculpture work. Me and my wife attended the one day with Alan and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We had an idea of what we wanted to make and Alan went through all the processes to get to the finished product. MIG welding, plasma cutting, bending and cutting metal there was so much content in one day. When you are finished you have a piece of your own work to take away with you which we were thoroughly pleased with. Also Alan was a great teacher, very funny and had some great welding stories."

Hilary Stephenson reviewed: Introduction to welded metal sculpture

"When I started with the idea that I’d like to have a go a welding, not only did my better half jump on the bandwagon but other members of my family too. We all arrived with ideas, thinking that no way would it be possible to complete these creations in two days, however, the confidence Alan gave us and freedom to use as many of the tools available in the process to help us achieve our goals was inspirational. I was surprised how versatile and malleable metal can be, feeding it through the bending machine and ‘mangle’, but the plasma cutter was great fun (want one!) I’d certainly recommend the course, and it’s a great shared experience! Thanks again Alan, you may well be seeing us again!"

John Watkins reviewed: Introduction to welded metal sculpture

"I spent two days, 19th and 20th November, with Alan and really found it a positive experience. Alan explained his design process and the path he takes to construction. Through Alan's calm and consistent manner, I was able to use a MIG welder to produce my own creation. I wouldn't say I was in anyway good, but it has made me realise some real enjoyment and my desire to get further training. Hopefully in the future I'll be creating my own sculpture."
