Service Description

Charles O'Neil is a full-time artist living and working in the Haliburton Highlands. In the 1990's Charles became interested in three dimensional sculptures and moved into the use of metals. With some artist blacksmithing techniques Charles developed a method of creating sculptures of wire commonly found at most building supply companies. This course requires the use of simple hand tools (wire cutters, pliers). Wire sculpture is an exciting and expressive art form. In this workshop you will receive step-by-step instruction to successfully create your project. With a variety of wires (steel, copper, galvanized) this creation is designed for indoor or garden use, and will be a great addition to any setting.
