Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop SHOWDOWN AT SUNDOWN

(adapted from a communication from Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop)

This event is free, and there is no need to book. Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is at 21 Hawthornvale, Edinburgh, EH6 4JT.

Join us on the 30 November 3.00 to 5.30pm to celebrate the year’s end. Following on from the success of last year, on the 30th of November we will be running Showdown at Sundown, the 2nd ESW annual winter event.

There will be a chance to see the work of our artists as they open the doors of their studios, performances, a screening of Juliana Capes’ film Sunset Reports, artist-made games, a workshop and a smoke firing in the courtyard and the opening of the new exhibition, Display Copy, in the Hawthornvale Space. There will be winter themed refreshments provided by MILK and the event will be finished off with drinks and music from Karate Priest.

In Showdown at Sundown, we are extending a warm welcome to everyone to learn more about what happens at ESW and get to know each other. If you are a regular participant, have never visited, are a curious neighbour, Studio Holder, Member, Artist-in-Residence or along term friend of ESW — let’s get together.
