Prerequisites and selection

Requirements

General entrance requirements

Special instructions for application

CV; Previous experience and education. In this part, you refer to courses you have attended and describe past experiences that you believe are important for your application. Having attended a preparatory artistic training or preparatory wooden craft training is an advantage but not a requirement. Previous employments, hobbies or travels can be just as important to list here, if you find that it strengthens your application.

Portfolio, work samples, 6 images. In this part you show own work that represent your creative experience. We want to see photographs of furniture and objects, drawings, sketches, paintings and/or croquis. Each uploaded photograph must have a caption explaining why the photograph is included in the application. Here we look at form and color, presentation and ideas. The education is based on independent and practical exploration of the material wood and therefore we would like to see examples of experience of this in your portfolio.



Selection

The selection is based on submitted work samples.
