Join us for our Winter Event celebrating a year of activity and take the chance to embrace the dark winter afternoon. Visitors can watch the process of casting moulds with molten iron, make their own cast in aluminium*, take tours of ESW’s workshops and studios*, and hear from Alec Finlay and James N Hutchinson, and curator Jenny Brownrigg about their on residencies at Sweeney’s Bothy on Eigg and Inshriach Bothy in the Cairngorms. Work by artists running courses at ESW will be displayed, current artist-in-residence Amelia Tan will stage a new performance and the band Edinburgh Leisure will round-off the afternoon with a live set.

This is an opportunity for our neighbours, friends and visitors to meet ESW studio holders, members and artists- in-residence, share news of the year and look forward to 2019.

Visitors can also go inside the Artist Bothy currently residing in ESWs Courtyard and check out artist editions by Laura Aldridge, Trakke, and James Rigler & Virginia Hutchinson which will be on sale through Bothy Stores.
