Art is often considered a delicate pursuit, but here’s a chance to play with the heavy duty stuff. Designed specifically for artists, this two-day London Sculpture Workshop course will introduce you to the shiny world of stainless steel welding and finishing.
There are iconic stainless steel sculptures all over the world. From the Cloud Gate in Chicago, to the Jerusalem Upside Down in Jerusalem; from the Sibelius Monument in Helsinki to the seven Cones in Canberra, shrewd stainless steel artists have produced many lasting landmarks. Get acquainted with the craft in this workshop in Woolwich and you might have your own gleaming sculpture in a big city one day.
Over two intensive days, you’ll learn the benefits of working creatively with stainless steel . You’ll begin by learning how to manipulate the versatile alloy with a variety of processes, including Tig, Mig and Arc welding, drilling and grinding. Later, you’ll learn about satin and mirror polishing. You’ll develop your own project and ideally end up with a small sculpture of your own at the end!
The course takes place is a workshop, so safe workshop practices will be covered. Old clothes and strong footwear is essential. Basic materials are covered in the class cost.
Julian Wild is a renown sculptor. He’s been making sculpture in stainless steel for over ten years and is also the Vice President of The Royal British Society of Sculptors.
This course has a limited capacity of 10 people, so be quick to “steel” your spot!
