Inspiring future sculptors with Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Regular visitors to the blog will know that we sponsor Yorkshire Sculpture Park. By providing materials to the park and the various programmes they run, we’re supporting them in inspiring more people to think of metal and sculpture, differently. To kick off the collaboration we partnered with leading metalwork artist, Brian Fell, to host a two-day workshop. Together with his colleague, Owen Cunningham, Brian shared his passion and experience with 15 enthusiastic participants over the course of a weekend. The workshop group was made up of people with all levels of experience. Using metals in a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses – all provided by metals4U – everyone was encouraged to express themselves by creating pieces from this most versatile of materials. Brian and Owen were on hand to demonstrate the tools and the techniques they use to ensure everyone learnt something valuable – as well as a few tricks of the trade! The response from attendees was fantastic and we look forward to the next event.
