Forging Ahead Metal Sculptures

See & Do
Come and visit an artist working in their own studio.

Mel is an award-winning artist with a home studio in beautiful Hurstbridge. Mel specialises in metal sculptures from 20cm, up to three metres in height. These are usually made from many pieces which are hand bent to design large scale artworks.

And for the rest of us, she creates garden sculptures, flowers, garden stakes, birdbaths, water fountains and wall arts.

Come and see her space, and view sculptures for sale in her garden. Prices from $20. Bespoke, handcrafted, intricate feminine sculptures that will last a lifetime.

Mel could also demonstrate her sculpting skills, and you could do an Artistic Welding Workshop, and learn how to MIG weld and build your own sculpture to take home. All in half a day.

Forging Ahead is based in stunning Hurstbridge, right at the end of the train line, and in walking distance of Hurstbridge Village.

You could park onsite, or take a train or bus, grab a coffee or lunch at the lovely cafes, and walk through parkland to Mel's home. She looks forward to you visiting.
