Scrap Metal Sculptures

Today Grace from Creative Minds led the session using a large collection of scrap metal objects to make wonderful sculptures. We had different gauges of wire in a variety of colours, sprockets, ring pulls, mesh, springs, buckles, keys and many more items.

There was plenty of inspiration at hand from Grace herself and from some metal sculpture ideas she had printed out. We started selecting pieces that we felt we could make into something.

It soon became apparent that butterflies were a popular theme.

As the session progressed, some spectacular pieces of work began to emerge.

This was a really productive session, having more time on the first Monday of each month makes a real difference as people can work on their pieces without any time pressure. We are all looking forward to our next session.
