Commissioning Work



I am happy to consider commissions of any size and I will give free, no-obligation estimates. As well as purely sculptural 'fine art' pieces I am also always interested in projects with a more functional aspect such as furniture, architectural and garden features. If you have a specific vision in mind for a project I can work with you to find a practical way to realise it. In most cases I can work to a guaranteed budget, based a mutually agreed specification.

Commissioning a sculpture gives you the opportunity to own a unique piece of art with as much or as little input as you like. By it's nature this is an experimental and exploratory process and I am happy for clients to have as much or as little input as they wish. Often the best work comes from a flexible approach which allows the work to develop organically.

Workshops & Tuition


I can provide private individual or group tuition and assistance with the design and realisation of your own projects. These range from starter course in general metalworking to tuition in specific processes and equipment. As a guide small group courses start at around £120 per person for a day, including basic materials. I can tailor day courses to suit your specific interests and level of experience and usually aim to work them out so that you end up with a finished piece of work at the end. Individual day courses start from around £200 with discounts for multiple days.


These course are ideal for recent arts graduates or enthusiasts who want to expand their technical skills or for amateur makers who need access to specific facilities for a special project. They would also suit people who would like to try out certain processes before they make their mind up about buying particular pieces of equipment.

I can also offer multi day courses and group booking at a discount. All solo participants must be at least 18 years old, Younger participants must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or legal guardian. Group bookings for under 18s are available for schools and colleges.
