Production Specifics

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshops have been specially designed for contemporary sculptural practice. Training or inductions are required for some of the equipment and machinery, but all workshops are staffed by a Technical Team for support and advice. Access to the workspaces can be booked out by the day, or through a membership access card. Artists wanting to make or develop work over a longer period should discuss access requirements with a member of the Technical Team before making a booking. NB They do not offer or support commercial fabrication or furniture-making or allow access for any non-sculptural production activity. They do not allow resin, sandstone or helium to be used.

Company History

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop was set up in 1986 by a group of sculptors. It existed as an artist-run organisation for many years and this ethos continues to inform their planning and development. With funding from Creative Scotland, a land gift from the City of Edinburgh Council and self raised funding Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop moved into their purpose built Bill Scott Sculpture Centre in June 2012. It was named after their inspirational Chair, Professor Bill Scott whose vision and energy drove the capital campaign, the Sculpture Centre has been designed by Sutherland Hussey Architects to provide a high quality working environment for artists.
