London Sculpture Workshop is the first, not-for-profit, community interest organisation, based in London, with exceptional facilities for artists and those interested in making work in 3D. Its workshop is right on the river by Thames Barrier and has incredible views of the Thames guiding lots of inspiration for 3D pieces. It offers a superbly equipped metal and wood workshop with additional mould making and ceramic areas.

London Sculpture Workshop was established in 2012 by two founding members Giles Corby, MA (RCA) and Jessica Mello, MFA (Slade) and it also has a studio manager Melis van den Berg, MFA (Slade).
