About

This course package is aimed at you who want an introduction to artistic studies in metal art. Throughout an entire semester, you will have the opportunity to explore different techniques in metal through assignments and themes with a focus on materials, body, and space. You will receive support in developing working methods and reflecting on your work, and also in communicating your choice of methods orally and in writing. Through lectures, supervised exercises, workshops, and tutorials, you will explore visual design and communication, as well as theory and history, providing a foundation for a rich and well-rounded education as you develop your craftsmanship.

You will study in an international and unique environment: HDK-Valand at Steneby in Dals Långed, 170 kilometres north of Gothenburg. We have one of the largest academic metal workshop in the world, including a 1200-square-meter forge. If you want to continue your studies beyond one semester, you can apply for a continuation course that takes place during the spring term.

Admission is made subject to availability in our workshops. The language of instruction is English, but if you are Swedish-speaking, you can perform certain tasks in Swedish. You can apply in English or Swedish.
