Course Leaders Presentation

We are very pleased to show a presentation of work by artists who run evening and weekend courses at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.

You can view this work from the large windows onto Hawthornvale. Every year we work with around 20 different artists to devise and offer great courses which relate to those artists’ practices. The artists in this presentation are running a broad range of courses including the Macramé Taster course which is run by Lucy Wayman, Glass Pate de Verre Vessel course led by Karen Akester and Wood Carving with Birthe Jorgensen.

Our carefully curated course programme gives you the chance to develop new skills and learn about contemporary and historical developments in sculpture. There’s several courses in our Spring 2019 programme which still have spaces available which you can book at this link – https://edinburghsculpture.org/learning/sculpture-courses/
