This workshop will take place over four evenings and will enable you to learn a variety of skills necessary for working with steel rods. Using these skills you will create three-dimensional drawings and approach new ways of conceiving sculpture.


We will explore the space, the volume and different types of lines from a new perspective, considering the light, shadows and interstices between the lines as part of the work as well.

The course will cover the techniques of bending, cutting, grinding, rolling & shaping steel rods.  It will cover MIG welding.

Weeks 1 & 2:  Initial introduction to drawing in the space including the volume, the lin, modulating the line in the space. Light, projections and shadows will also be discussed as well as an introduction to the workshop practice and possibilities of materials. Students will be encouraged to create a design with wire.
