Your workshops and digital spaces are opening their doors for a day of exploring parts of Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) you might not regularly visit or that you’ve always been curious to learn more about.

Support staff will be on hand to guide you through some of the processes and work that take place in these spaces, and how you can make the most of them.

These sessions are open to all ECA students, from all of our subject areas.
