Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop offers a base for artists providing low cost studios, exhibition space and workshops. Having been based on Hawthornvale in Newhaven for more than 20 years, being housed until recently in a draughty old railway shed, ESW began a campaign to raise funds for a new facility to better suit the needs of the sculptors and artists. With significant contributions from Creative Scotland, Lottery Funding and a land gift from City of Edinburgh Council work could finally begin.
The new buildings house a studio community, specialist workshops, artist residencies and production spaces and areas for exhibition. Indoor and outdoor spaces support a range of different sculptural activities and provide viewing areas to enable visitors to see work in progress. A public cafe located in the centre of the building joins the artists spaces with the public and completes the facilities.
