Scottish Sculpture Workshop – Lumsden

Residency Visit – 18.02.2015


Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW) was established in 1979 by sculptor Fred Bushe, RSA OBE, set in the rolling hills of the Grampian Mountains. SSW is based in the rural village of Lumsden in the North East of Scotland.

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.
