Maker's bio

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.

Wayne Smith reviewed: One person - sculpture/soldering brazing wire forming course, specialising in insects, fairies

"Brilliant and informative course - thoroughly recommended! I attended a one to one course with Roger for the day yesterday. Beforehand Roger had liaised regarding my level of expertise - absolute novice, the safety equipment required (although he provided most of it) and whether I had a particular form of welding in mind. I had a MIG welder for a Christmas present a couple of years ago which was still in the box. I swapped photos with Roger and he told me what wire etc. I needed. On the day we set-up my welder and plugged it in for the first time and I was welding within minutes under Roger's expert tuition. We covered welding all sorts and thicknesses of materials and the respective settings for the machine with me continuously welding through the day. I was also taught how to use a TIG welder towards the end of course. Very enjoyable, informative and practical course."

"Great course. We were welding within 30 minutes and by the end of the day we'd tried several types and I think I now have an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of each. Roger's very passionate about what he does which made it a fun day."

"Good day. I'm a total beginner and wanted to do a 'proper' welding project but also to understand exactly what I could do on the creative side. Roger helped that I covered everything I needed and more and I got to play with all the toys I wanted to, I'm certainly going to continue exploring this field. Roger was always around with advice and a cup of tea - even if I ddi show up on the wrong day !. Recommended."

"I really enjoyed my day. Roger greatly helped me to develop my understanding of working with different materials, and power settings. And I enjoyed learning about MIG welding too. I found the whole experience quite inspiring and definitely worth the money. Thank you Roger"
