Based on re-imagining the learning environment to facilitate new knowledge, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s research programme examines workshop-based approaches to artistic production that are theoretically informed, practical and participatory. The programme facilitates new experiential knowledge, practices and tools for artists and art educators to adapt and implement and is enabling us to develop an international network of practitioners and educators.
Participation is managed in two ways. Arts collectives and organisations are invited to propose artists from their networks, and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop advertises places through open call.
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop manages projects within the public realm which we initiate or develop in partnership with other organisations. Projects have included Steep Trail – a partnership with Polarcap and Fife Contemporary Art & Craft which presents and develops work in Scotland and China; the National Memorial for Organ & Tissue Donors in Scotland – a public artwork by Alec Finlay located in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh; and The Edward Marshall Award – a design project to create furniture for the new public spaces at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
