Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is a centre for production, research and learning. We support artists in their careers and practice through the provision of space, funding and professional opportunities. As well as specialist production facilities supporting specific processes, there are studios accommodating a peer network and spaces designed to accommodate research, presentation and learning. Our staff team provides advice, training and mentoring.

In tandem with this is a commitment to public engagement and we are constantly exploring innovative ways to bring audiences closer to the process of making art through education, partnership working and open access to our facilities. Our learning programmes offer a route to understanding artistic processes and approaches for artists, life-long learners, teachers, children and young people. Talks, exhibitions and other events provide opportunities for audiences to see the outcomes of our programme.

The buildings house a studio community, specialist workshops, artist residency and production spaces and areas for exhibition. Indoor and outdoor spaces support a range of different sculptural activities and provide viewing areas to enable visitors to see work in progress.
