Creating Metal Sculptures Using Found Objects

At this meeting, Jack brought in a large collection of found metal objects for everyone to play around with. He talked about the history of using metal in art and demonstrated how to arrange metal to create a piece that is both representational and non-representational. 

Participants had an opportunity to try their hand at creating their own sculptures which Jack will weld for them at a later date.
