Scottish Sculpture Workshop
Huntly, United Kingdom
Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW) is situated at the North end of Lumsden’s Main Street. When it was established in 1979 by artist and educator, Fred Bushe it was the first sculpture-specific artist workshop to be developed in the UK.
SSW is a making and thinking facility – offering the time, space, support and facilities to artists from all backgrounds to develop their practice, with an emphasis on experimentation and exploration of sculpture within the expanded field. Through a series of curated projects, collaboration and skill exchanges between visual artists, local specialists and the wider North East community, SSW promotes a dialogue that considers our rural locale within a globalised society. The core programme of SSW is based around the facilitation of artist residencies, the delivery of projects and the provision of facilities, as well as offering open access to workshops for all.
