Artist Kevin Reid is currently in residency at SSW to lead a workshop in the skills and processes of metal casting as part of a broader project with National Galleries Scotland.

The workshop incorporates working with youths to produce a series of metal plaques, which they will be pouring this week, as well as tapestry-making.
