Brilliant workshop. Covered all the basics and cake away confident of being able to use a variety of tools and machines. Andrew was fantastic as tutor, knowledgeable, helpful and patient!

Brilliant course. Learned lots, gained confidence in using the tools and machines, tutor and other learners made a friendly & supportive learning environment. I did it straight after the Wood and Metal Tools workshops, which worked really well for me, as time to reflect, correct, and "normalise" being in a metal workshop, with its noises, smells & hazards!

Really enjoyed the course. The teacher, Andrew, was great, really knowledgeable, easy to talk to and he explained things really well. Well worth it.

Great short course that covered lots of methods and techniques. Teacher was excellent - professional, clear, helpful and had the right balance between showing you and getting you to do it yourself. Would definitely recommend.

Great teacher...will be coming back
Sam Harvey - 1 June 2021
My two days were like being on holiday. I enjoyed the freedom to experiment with guidance. The balance between giving us a basic introduction and then allowing us to work on our own ideas was perfect. The advice and guidance was also spot on. I am hoping to be back soon.

I love the courses held at London Sculpture workshop - great facilities, and experienced teachers!
Ian Lanksbury - 20 April 2021
Total fantastic 2 days on this course. Learnt a huge amount in a very short time and enjoyed every second. The tutor, Andrew, was brilliant helping all the way along with everyone and helping us to realise the pieces we were creating and making sure we got the most out of the course. I would highly recommend this course if you're interested in working in metal and trying out all the machinery and techniques.

Great course. Covered most of the machines available in the workshop. Plenty of input and advice available on projects that people had brought in.
Nigel - 11 March 2018
Excellent introduction to working with metal - good supply of metal to experiment with and good equipment. Have since joined the London Sculpture Workshop so that I can use the Open-Access facilities.
