Make flowers with foliage using aluminium sheet. You'll learn
how to manipulate these materials by cutting, forming, texturing
Come on this practical one day course and learn how to manipulate aluminium and metal sheet into three dimensional forms. Our inspiration will come from West Dean Gardens, which are still abundant at this time of year, with vases of flowers and foliage brought into the workshop. You can choose to focus on making one flower or several with foliage, dependant on the scale and detail required - suggested scale is no smaller than 20cms and no larger than 50cms.
During this exciting day you will learn a variety of metalworking techniques that include cutting, forming, texturing and shaping.
No previous experience is required in metal work and coming on this course will enable you to discover new skills and directions.
