Schools Programme

Working in partnership with the two local primary schools Trinity and Victoria, groups of pupils join us every week in the Outdoor Learning Studio. Throughout the school year we work with over 100 Primary 5s.

Schools Programme

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop has been running a Schools Programme in partnership with our two closest primary schools, Trinity and Victoria since 2012. Up until 2020 each year every Primary 5 pupil from these schools would visit the Sculpture Workshop for an hour each week for a whole school year to make work in our shared learning studio with invited artists. Every week they would come with their teachers, parents and volunteers to participate in practical workshops that encourage imagination, collaboration, play and experimentation.

From Autumn 2021 we have been working on an adapted model of the schools programme in our outdoor learning studio. This year all the Primary 5 pupils from Trinity and Victoria will be working with us and invited artists on a programme of workshops for 6 week blocks.
