Metal Sculpture Studio

The only workshop where you can create metal sculptures by learning all you need to know about metal techniques.

If you are interested in metal sculpture, welcome to Atölye20 Metal Sculpture Workshop.

The iron sculpture workshop, led by sculptor Sevgi Karay, is conducted with the supervision of workshop assistants. At the beginning of the workshop, we discuss the studio, materials, and shaping techniques. We provide participants with information on tool usage and safety in metal sculpture before starting the production, and we support the projects to be completed safely throughout the entire process.

In the initial lessons, forging, welding, and hot bending methods are explained. Subsequently, the techniques are applied together with the projects included in the program. Eventually, the best technique is selected and implemented according to the project.

After completing projects that encompass all the techniques within the program, we collaborate to bring your envisioned sculpture to life. We guide you through all stages, from the planning phase to the realization with iron material.

After reaching a certain level by participating in Atölye20 Sculpture Workshops, we provide support and guidance for your participation in personal or group exhibitions.
