A resource that brings together the production of sculpture with critical, cultural and educational programming on this art form, it enables the realisation of ambitious artworks by offering expertise to help sculptors hone their skills and advance their practice.

Our multifarious activities web together a rich and diverse network of individuals and organisations that share our commitment to making cultural production more sustainable, accessible, diverse and engaged.

As part of this we offer a range of technical and fabrication support services to artists, architects, designers, galleries and others. We provide skilled technicians to teach or work with artists in their studio, and fabricators who take on the complete fabrication of an artwork, large or small.
