New for Spring 2019: Metal Sculpture – Practice and Process

12 February 2019

New for 2019, Metal Sculpture – Practice and Process has been expanded to 4 days. This creative metalwork course takes place over consecutive Saturdays on 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd March 2019. You will be introduced to 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 is suitable for beginners and those who have some previous experience. A maximum of 6 participants ensures 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 said they liked about the previous courses:
“The creative freedom to use all of the different pieces of equipment (many that I haven’t used before), along with Joe’s excellent, patient and encouraging approach and support”.
“Anything is possible. Joe was fantastic, he was able to facilitate everyone’s ideas. He was very skilled and encouraging”.
“Good pace, good discussions”.
“…really liked the atmosphere and Joe’s teaching and supportive way”.
