Calling all sculpture students!

(Last modified: June 26th, 2017)

Are you a student who knows their alloys from their aluminium and their block scraper from their bush pick? Do you love discovering materials, learning new techniques and designing weird and wonderful sculptures? If you’re nodding along then we want to hear from you.

We’ve teamed up with Yorkshire Sculpture Park and artists Brian Fell and Owen Cunningham to give one lucky student a chance to win a free place on their workshop, Midsummer Metal, usually costing £270 per person.

Brian Fell is known for creating amazing large scale sculptures in metal like the ‘Ha Ha’ bridge – specially developed for YSP. While Owen has worked with steel for over 20 years creating memorable pieces on display at the Ironbridge Museum and Telford.

The two-day course gives you the opportunity to get creative in a sculptor’s wonderland. You’ll have access to every tool you can think of and all the metal you could need, along with demonstrations, direction and advice from Brian and Owen.

All you have to do to win the prize is show us photos of your sculptures. It could be your latest masterpiece, a sculpture you’re particularly proud of, or your designs for future pieces. Maybe the one you’ll make at Brian’s workshop? Once you’ve got your entry photos ready, submit them here.

Entries are open now and the winner will be announced on June 1st. You have to be a student and over 18 to enter.

Good luck!
