Scrap Sculptures is BACK! Join us for an action packed day of learning to cut and weld metal, and embark on an adventurous escapade to make some amazing sculptures from absolute scrap and junk.
This exciting one day course is intended to help us learn by doing, and by the end of the day, everybody will be able to make use of the most common welding and metal cutting machinery to cut metal to size and make good joints for sculptural purposes.
We will brandish angle grinders, chop saws, files, hacksaws, rivet guns, drills and burnishers to cut out metal to size and put a fine finish on it, and then use stick welders and MIG welders to stick it all together into the most fantastical creations our imaginations can conjure.
This course is an optimum adventure to embark upon with a partner so you can creatively conjure the vision together and learn in tandem, whilst watching out for each other's safety.
You will be provided with all personal protective equipment including overalls, gloves, face shields, masks and hair ties, but we ask that you wear strong footwear which you are not emotionally attached to, as the hot welding sparks damage shoes. Open top boots are not acceptable — please wear leather shoes with no gaps or mesh. Old walking boots are a good option.
The course will be delivered with a higher ratio of supervisors to participants, so that we can watch out for safety, and make sure everybody gets the chance to ask all the questions they need to ask.
This is going to be a great day, loads of creative learning and adventuring with exciting equipment so please book your place before they get snapped up!

The workshop will start at 9:30 but we ask that you arrive 20 minutes early to get ready.

Advance tickets £45 before 28/2 / £50 after

Some of the lovely feedback from the last Scrap Sculptures:

Fantastic day! Learnt loads and really enjoyed it. Phil made everything easily understandable.

Top course. Had an excellent time. Would 100% recommend. Will definitely be back!

This is my second course at Open Source Arts, and what a great day! Scrap Sculpture welding workshop was a wonderful introduction to metalwork- more workshops please.

A great introduction to welding. Really fun and accessible with lots of friendly advice along the way.

Another great course. Met some lovely people. Gained some introductory knowledge in welding and had a lot of fun in the process.

A brilliant way to spend a soggy Sunday afternoon! Well worth the money and will use my new skills and new found confidence in future projects. Many thanks Phil!
