Videos to make it easy!
The Goal: Instructional videos to get you started
All the videos are based upon when I first started in 1967.
I had very few tools and no place to work.
Essentially I was at ground zero.
The main thing I did have was “desire”. I wanted to create in metal.
If this feels like the right place to be, then come along and I’ll help you as much as I can.
I believe that everyone is creative. Sometimes all we need is a slight nudge to begin.
I’m here to provide that nudge.
What I offer is Hands on information to get you started.
I’ve uploaded over 100 YouTube videos.
We’ll talk about tools; tools you have, tools you’d like to have and tools that you can make yourself.
Metals: To begin you will want to work with metals that are the easiest to find.
These are usually copper and steel.
My goal is to show you what I know and get you started.
From there you can begin adding your own creative ideas.
If you are not aware of the creative side of yourself, you soon will be.
I’ll show you techniques that I use.
Many of the techniques I show take minimal tools and materials.
Through the years I’ve gathered a lot of simple techniques which I am happy to share.
The benefits are many.
You can discover your inner creativeness.
Reduce Stress: I have found working at my bench to be mentally calming.
There is so much in the news about dementia and Alzheimer’s.
I don’t know the scientific dimensions of dementia and Alzheimer’s, but I do know that an active mind is a step in the right direction.
The interest in my videos comes from;
The person that has always wanted to creatively work with metal and those that want to add to their income or make a full time living.
If you want you can add to your income through your work.
You can start learning how to sell your work.
I’ve written a basic book, “Selling Your Arts & Crafts”. A Beginner’s Guide.
This is based on my over 30 years of selling my work.
Again, take what I have to offer and then begin adding your own approach based on your experience.
Above all make it fun!
