Project Space and Open day at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop

I am spending 2 weeks using the project space at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop to experiment with new large pieces of work. This has been funded by a Craft Makers Award from City of Edinburgh Council .
I am exploring the use of environmentally friendlier concretes to produce work on a bigger scale than so far I have made in clay.This is a new area for me and I am learning a lot. I am using bone and erroded rock forms as inspiration, as in previous pieces.
ESW hve an Open day this coming Saturday , 16th July from 11am to 3pm. There are lots of different workshops and activities going on, including a talk with me from 12 to 1pm.
