Four session class
Working with steel - oh yes please!
In this class
Welcome to the world of steel - the class where you learn to bend, cut, grind, roll and shape steel rods.
This class requires absolutely no previous steel skills - just some strong shoes, a desire to get your hands dirty and some good old elbow grease!
Ever wanted to give welding a go? Think you can create your very own sculpture for the garden? Well, this dynamic and exciting course takes place over 4 evenings and by the end you will:
- Have a variety of new skills needed for working with steel rods;
- Be able to bend, cut, grind, roll and shape steel rods;
- Do some welding (yeah, we have always wanted to do that too!)
Once you are up and running post the introduction session and the sweat has been wiped from your brow, you will take hold of an idea and work on your own individual sculpture(s).
Things to bring:
- Please bring along some form of sketchbook and also (cos we are nice) you will have an allowance of £10 for additional materials in the shop in case you forget anything, or want anything extra!
- Make sure you come wearing some old clothes and solid footwear.(we wouldn't want a wardrobe disaster...)
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
