workshops (one to one sessions)

 

I am currently offering 2 workshops; a taster session and a 1 day introduction to welding and metal sculpture, details below.

Please contact me for more infomation and to book your workshop.

 

Taster session

Duration: 2 hours

After a brief demonstration of welding you get to make simple designs in metal, for example hanging Christmas tree decorations.

This involves:

  • Drawing your design and making a cardboard template.
  • Cutting out your design in metal using tin snips and a guillotine.
  • Shaping/texturing the metal using hammers and chisels on an anvil or wooden block.
  • Drilling holes, filing and cleaning the metal.
  • Using the oxy acetylene welding equipment to melt edges, braze or heat for colour effect.

 

 

Full day workshop in  welding and metal sculpture

Duration: 1 day (10a.m – 4.30p.m with a lunch break)

After a short lesson in welding you get to design and make a simple metal sculpture that would hang on a wall or stick in the ground, for example flowers, butterflies or fish.

This involves:

  • Learning to use the oxy acetylene welding equipment.
  • Designing your sculpture and making a cardboard template.
  • Cutting out your design in metal using tin snips and a guillotine.
  • Shaping/texturing the metal using hammers and chisels on an anvil or wooden block.
  • Drilling holes, filing and cleaning the metal.
  • Using the oxy acetylene welding equipment to make your sculpture, melt edges, braze or heat for colour effect.
