The work of the hand
”The well equipped workshops are unique. I don’t think there are many schools in the world that can offer so good fascilities for realizing your ideas. “

The New HDK has a workshop area of 5612 square metres in total, of which 3768 are located at Steneby.
Many of our students, especially exchange students from countries outside of Sweden, talk about the HDK workshops as a fantastic asset that they are not used to. This makes us happy of course, since we are very proud of our workshops and our staff.
At HDK we have workshops for: many different textile techniques, wood, metal, model, jewellry, ceramic and digital tools. A bit outside of Gothenburg, at Nääs in Floda, we also have a field laboratory where you can, among other things, work with Anagama kilns.
If you click the headline of the separate workshops you’ll find pictures and more detailed information.
