Maker's bio

I have been sculpting, fabricating and teaching metalwork since 2002 using a wide range of skills and techniques. I have run my own metal sculpture practice as well as freelanced for sculpture and set making companies including The Royal Opera House. I love teaching and have a huge amount of experience working with people of all ages either one on one or with groups. I am City & Guilds qualified and currently teach C&G Welding at Plumpton College.

Grace Blagden reviewed: Welding 101 - One on One!

"Had a fantastic day with Philip, focusing on TIG welding. I'd not done TIG before and he was great at explaining the machinery and the processes. It was so much fun trying the different materials and types of joins. I learned a lot from a great teacher and had fun doing it!"

"Hi Grace, Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure running the workshop with you and I’m very pleased you found it valuable. Feel free to contact me with any questions in the future! Thanks, Philip "

Adam reviewed: Welding 101 - One on One!

"Great day with Philip learning to weld with mig, MMA and tig as a total newbie. Now loaded up with the confidence to get together a little home setup and turn the tuition and practice into a useful item of some description. Would recommend to anyone who too would like to be able to weld. "

Philip Melling Sculpture, Art & Design responded:

"Hi Adam, Thanks so much for your kind review, I’m really pleased you enjoyed the workshop and are beginning a journey into metalwork! Feel free to contact me if you want any advice in the future and you’re always welcome back if there is something specific you’d like more training in. I have emailed you details of the suppliers I mentioned, let me know if you need advice on where to get anything else. Thanks, Philip "

Phill reviewed: Introduction to Metalwork & Welding - for 1 or 2 People

"I wanted to learn more about metal work and have a go on a few tools before getting myself setup at home. Phillip is a great teacher, patient and very knowledgeable and gave me lots of hints and tips about the best way to get started at home. Plasma cutting, welding, working with the forge, angle cutting and grinding. I even made a start on my dream project - a weathervane. I would highly recommend! "

"Hi Phill, Thanks so much for your kind review - it was a pleasure having you in the workshop. Good luck setting up your workspace and feel free to get in touch if you need any advice on anything! Philip"

Tim Still reviewed: Introduction to Metalwork & Welding - for 1 or 2 People

"Really excellent course. Philip took us through every aspect of the metal working we were keen to know about. We both came away with a new found appreciation for the skill involved in creating out of metal. Would definitely recommend this course."

Philip Melling Sculpture, Art & Design responded:

"Thanks Tim for your kind review! I’m so glad you enjoyed the course and got what you wanted from it. It was a pleasure to have you both and I hope you can make it back for a second round! Cheers, Philip "
