Oxy-Acetylene kit and basic Forge.
Circular saw, Bandsaw, Planer thicknesser, Pedestal sander.
Forklift, Gantry, Compressor and Kiln for ceramics and glass.
ESW also provides a range of electric and hand tools as well as access to Personal Protective Equipment for workshop users. We charge session fees for day users and some equipment incurs a supplementary consumables charge.
Equipment and workspace can be booked on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
A dedicated technician is on duty from 9.30am – 5pm Monday to Saturday.
Before accessing the larger, fixed, machinery in the wood and metal workshops it is necessary to have a health & safety induction with a member of the technical team. Depending on your familiarity with the equipment you will then be able to work at ESW on your own.
If you are unfamiliar with the use of equipment in the wood or metal workshop one to one training can be arranged, or you can book onto one of ESW’s sculpture courses which will enable you to familiarize yourself with a range of workshop equipment.
Inductions Charges: £6 per machine (inc VAT)
Some storage is available for materials and work in progress.
Lockers are also available to hire, rates start from £6 per month.
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is located in Newhaven.
