What you will do

Two session course

Daytime

This workshop will take place over two days and will enable you to learn a variety of skills necessary for working with steel rods. Using these skills you will create three-dimensional drawings and approach new ways of conceiving sculpture.

We will explore the space, the volume and different types of lines from a new perspective, considering the light, shadows and interstices between the lines as part of the work as well.

The course will cover the techniques of bending, cutting, grinding, rolling & shaping steel rods. It will cover MIG welding.

Initial introduction to drawing in the space including the volume, the lin, modulating the line in the space. Light, projections and shadows will also be discussed as well as an introduction to the workshop practice and possibilities of materials. Students will be encouraged to create a design with wire.

Students will work on individual sculpture/s or projects and research new possibilities and processes and will be shown finishing processes.

Small group numbers allows 1:1 tuition for participants on this course.

No sculpture experience is required.

This course is suitable for beginners or those who have already attended a previous Drawing with Steel course.

Did you know?

Choo choo! Steel was first used in mass production to construct railroad tracks. Because rails are subject to very high stress (trains are fast and heavy!), they must be made out of extremely high quality steel alloy. Hats off to you, steel - sounds like a stressful job!

This was very interesting & enjoyable. All the attendees came away with intriguing artifacts & had a good trial with the techniques & skills involved. No one had done any welding & all got to grips with it. Also a friendly diverse bunch of people & Silvina was an excellent guide. Many thanks.
