This year we are thrilled to be celebrating 40 years of Scottish Sculpture Workshop, and with it 40 years of making! We have some fantastic courses lined up, which continue to offer participants a unique opportunity to discover and explore a variety of materials and processes.

Taking place in our specialist workshops in rural Aberdeenshire, all of our courses are taught by our highly knowledgeable technicians who are experienced in supporting people of all levels and abilities to develop new skills. From Bronze Age Casting to Raku, check out our metal and ceramics courses to add to your skillset or try something new.

SSW can also arrange for tailor-made courses for groups or individuals.

Please contact us with any enquiries.
