Through July and August we are running our Sculpture Saturdays Programme, a series of bookable workshops designed for families to make, play and work together.
The workshops will be led by various artists, who have been invited to create specific games, objects or tools for participants to interact with in our new outdoor learning studios. Several of these artists will also be presenting their work in this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival.
We will be running 2 workshops a day for 4 families at a time, so when you book you can choose either morning or afternoon unless otherwise stated. The workshops are designed for primary school aged children and their families.
All our workshops will take place outside, so please remember to come dressed for the weather. Spaces are limited.
All workshops are free, donations welcome on the day. You can book for any of the workshops here.
