What happens in this class?

The words 'beating' and 'brazing' might sound a bit violent, but they'll take on a softer meaning when you learn to sculpt with sheet copper. This four-day course at London Sculpture Workshop is the perfect beginners' introduction to working with this splendidly shiny and marvelously malleable material.

In this course

This course takes place in the fantastic metal working workshop at LSW. On day one, you'll start by creating designs using paper templates and carving wooden moulds and formers. On day two, you'll learn how to cut, shape and fold copper by heating and beating (hey…

I know LSW well having done many courses here over the years and this is the first time I have been less than satisfied. On repeating this sheet copper course I did choose an ambitious project and was not disuaded at the outset by the new tutor. She was very skilled and helpful indeed but as one who is less well versed in the deployment of LSW's vast range of equipment her students progressed at a slower pace. LSW facilities are still good but I am now weary of a change of tutors.

Perfect introduction to sheet copper sculpture. The teacher was great providing just the right level of tuition to ensure competent and safe practice while allowing ample time to work through ideas. The workshop is very well equipped, flooded with natural light and everyone had plenty of room to work. Highly recommended.

Fantastic course, brilliant tutors, really got to grips with copper, highly recommend it.

Gave me the confidence to work in copper on my own. You discover how you can manipulate copper, how to cut (using plasma cutter) and how to join pieces (brazing) copper. The first part of day one we made a bowl and this taught us the basics, it was a very good stater activity. Next we could make anything we wanted. I think that it's a good idea to come prepared with some idea of what you want to make as this part was left entirely up to individual. Well stocked workshop. Very good tutor who was patient, very knowledgeable and very helpful. It didn't matter if you wanted to make a garden ornament or a sculpture he facilitated everyone's needs. Really glad I went would highly recommend. Only one negative you get really grubby!
