Metal Art, introductory course
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 Campus 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. See our virtual tour of the workshops.
The course package is given with study pace 100% during the autumn semester 2022. Students in the free-standing course co-study together with the program students in the BFA programme in Metal Art. The teaching takes place on site at HDK-Valand Campus Steneby. The language of instruction is English.
