Are you looking for a unique and exciting new art form? Explore the world of metalwork and create your very own copper sculpture!
You'll be guided from start to finish by your experienced metalwork teacher as you build your skills in a satisfying and rewarding craft. Over the course of four days, you will cover safety, building your confidence with a range of tools, and how to bend copper to your will.
Sheet copper is a versatile material, great for an outdoor art piece, water feature and hanging mobiles. Your friendly teacher will help you perfect your designs, but you are completely free to make whatever your heart wishes.
Whether you want a one-of-a-kind London activity, or you've always wanted to try out your own metalwork project, this course is a great way to pick up new skills and have fun with like-minded creatives.
