Evening

People with nerves of steel might be unflappable, but the alloy itself is more adaptable than you might think. In this dynamic course held over four evenings at London Sculpture Workshop, learn the skills for working with steel rods and drawing with steel. No previous sculpting experience is necessary, so beginners welcome!

In this course

The course will cover the techniques of bending, cutting, grinding, rolling and shaping steel rods. It will cover ARC welding and MIG welding. After mastering the basics, students will have the chance to work on individual sculptures or design projects and research new possibilities and processes.

Now you can

  • learn how this famously sturdy material can be shifted and shaped for a variety of purposes
  • create steel rods, leading to sculpture production and endless other possibilities
  • try your hand at welding and find out how steely your nerves truly are

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.
