Metal Sculpture Course – i run weekend sculpture courses with my good friend and fellow sculptor David Mayne. Working in a small group to create a relaxed and friendly workshop situation we take you through the various stages from initial idea to creating your own unique piece of sculpture. Under our expert guidance you can try MIG welding, plasma cutting, wire work and pop riveting whilst we supply endless tea & biscuits, you bring a packed lunch and we’ll provide picnic sharing extras all for £280. If you want to book on the next dates, drop me an email for a booking form. Our remaining 2019 courses dates are all sold out but these are the 2020 dates – Mar 28/29, Apr 25/26, May 30/31(sold out), Jun 20/21, Jul 18/19, Sept 19/20 and Oct 17/18. Snippets from previous courses can be found on the BLOG section of this website.
‘Loved the course! Trying something completely different whilst meeting new people with fascinating stories to tell over lunch each day was great. Then there is the sculpture, David and Mick are so creative! They patiently listen to your ideas and then help you make them into reality, meaning you have your own piece of sculpture to take home with pride. You also get to play with power tools! I would recommend this to novices and experienced creatives alike.’
‘I would definitely recommend the course; it’s informal and great fun. Mick and David have great vision and ideas which brought my thoughts to life. I made a ‘Shaun the Sheep’ light fitting. With their support I made it myself; I did every single weld, a real sense of achievement!’
‘I want to say a big thanks for the great weekend. I arrived with trepidation and thoughts of being out of my comfort zone alongside skilful fellow students. I left feeling very proud that i had learnt new skills and had a sculpture that was all my own work. But of course it was only possible because of your immense talent, ability to get the best out of me and the chance to have fun over two days.’
“Hazel and I were both slightly apprehensive about the metalwork course, being complete novices, never having touched welding equipment before. On arrival, we were immediately put at ease by Mick and Billy’s friendly and relaxing welcome. Their instruction methods made everything seem very straightforward, and once we had grasped the basics we were soon cutting, welding and grinding all sorts of metal bits and pieces to make our own creations, which we were able to proudly take home at the end of the weekend. The small numbers on the course enabled lots of one-to-one support, making it a very informal and personal experience, and we will both be back for more. Overall, brilliant, educational and value for money!”
