This four-day course at London Sculpture Workshop is the perfect beginners' introduction to working with this splendidly shiny and marvelously malleable material.

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!
