Make a Metal Sculpture

27 November 2016

The November 2016 course is almost finished, but I will be running this creative metalwork course again in the Spring. It will take place over 3 Saturdays on 18th, 25th March and 1st April 2017.

You will be working in steel in order to develop both a hands-on knowledge relating to the processes for sculptural fabrication, as well as a sculptural language in constructed metal for its own sake. This could result in linear and rhythmic forms in space, or volumetric and contained forms.
The course takes a maximum of 6 participants to ensure a high quality of teaching and student/teacher ratio. All materials and safety equipment provided. The course takes place in the superbly-equipped metalwork shop at Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

What participants say about the course:
“The course was brilliant. Joe makes complex and technical things seem simple. He manages the time well to ensure the best possible result for all students”.
“Hot, busy, fun”.
“Enjoyed that it was a relaxed atmosphere, freedom to explore equipment with assistance there when needed”.
“Inspiring, exhilarating, eye-opening”.
