Learn new skills and experiment with creative processes


Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop brings together professional artists, first-time participants, adult learners and young people on our learning and education programmes.

People come here to develop new and existing skills, access equipment and space, and to work with and learn from artists. All courses and learning activities are artist led and are designed to encourage discussion, debate and the sharing of knowledge between the different communities using the workshop.

Sculpture Courses

We offer an annual programme of courses for individuals interested in learning about the processes, techniques and critical approaches to contemporary sculpture. Evening courses allow for an in-depth exploration over several weeks, while our weekend and Saturday courses provide an introduction to processes.

Participants are encouraged to return to work here on their own to further develop their skills and knowledge.

Schools Programme

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s Schools Programme has been running since 2012. Working in partnership with two local Primary Schools Trinity and Victoria this innovative approach to visual arts education through long term engagement has seen the Primary 5 classes from both schools visit the workshop for an hour once a week for the whole school year.
