One to One - Introduction to welding metal sculpture with Roger Russell

In-person course
Phil Maud - - #36296

I struggle with welding and have tried other courses before. Roger managed to identify that I am having problems with my eyesight - I'm off to buy glasses! He ran through the necessary equipment - I now want to buy a TIG welder and he was patient as I struggled with technique.
I can now see that I need a great deal of practice to get to a level where I can achieve the kind of projects that I am hoping to achieve. It was certainly a worthwhile experience.

Roger arranged for the two of us to spend the day in his workshop. Made great use of the time and allowed us to get loads done in the day. We learned the basics of TIG welding and improved our skills during the day, also learned how to brass braze. By the end of the day, we had new metalwork skills and had produced a great sculpture to take home. 5/5.

Talk to Roger before the day and he can help you start to think about what is possible to make during the day.

This was a great course, Roger is very patient and takes the time to ensure everyone knows what they are doing whatever their skill level. As a complete novice I learnt so much in one day and took home a beautiful dragonfly that I made! Highly recommended.

A thoroughly enjoyable day!
I not only learnt how to solder & braze but lots of helpful hints and tips which will save time and make my creations more professional.
I have two projects to complete & a head full of new ideas.
Roger taught me that attention to detail is key when my usual approach is less structured.
I look forward to trying out my new skills.

I had a day course yesterday together with my friend. Neither of us has even soldered before but we managed to make good clean joins because Roger is a very good teacher. Projects will take some time to finish at home, but Roger was able to tell us the equipment and materials we would need, which are actually quite minimal. Just the right amount of help, shows you how to do it but does not do it for you! I would recommend to anyone who enjoys craftwork of any sort.

Response from High Definition wire sculpture:

It was a pleasure to teach you both, you both achieved high quality solder joints and and wire forming, using the secret method i taught you , using magnets i hope you start to make some great creations, be great to see you back in August :) Thank you Roger

I loved my day of soldering with my sister. Roger was very patient and gave just the right amount of help to ensure we learnt the correct techniques but still came away with a good start to our project. This is a skill that does take some time to learn and we may have to come back for another lesson if we get stuck later, but a very fun day. Thanks!

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of joining Roger for a day of private tuition! He introduced us to a range of exciting new mediums that we had not used before. Braising was a revelation!
Seeing his work in the flesh was exciting. His precision is beyond impressive, even if I am a bit more haphazard!
Overall it was fun sharing stories and learning new skills over plenty of cups of tea! We came away with nice creations too.

Cleo and I spent a day with Roger, he made us feel really welcome and he was very patient as we had never done anything like this before, We learnt an amazing amount and loved every minute of it. Would highly recommend him as he made it all so easy to understand. Will definitely go back.

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 :)
