In this course you will learn fundamental welding skills and complete small-scale welded steel sculptures.

Paul Hopmeier demonstrates techniques using arc and MIG welders and oxyacetylene to cut, shape and bend steel, as well as ways to grind steel and use surface treatments suited to steel. He discusses the aesthetics of form and space and introduces students to sculptors who have made significant contributions to the field.

Mild steel

Bring an assortment of pieces of mild steel for making your sculptures. Mild steel is the most common metal around us and is the kind that rusts easily of left exposed to the weather. You will be working with mild steel only and need to bring in an assortment of pieces with you. The sculpture department has a small supply of mild steel for demonstration.

You can find off-cuts and refuse from the engineering, manufacturing and building industries. It is available from smaller scrap metal yards, industrial bins (with permission) and rural properties. Machine or car parts containing grease or plastic and heavily painted pieces give off toxic fumes when burnt so are best avoided.

Covid-safe information

In line with NAS Covid Safety Guidelines, it is compulsory to wear masks indoors when on campus and all students and visitors must be fully vaccinated or have a medical contraindication form completed by a health professional.
