Workshops, machinery and materials
There are five workshops: The bronze Foundry, the stone-carving yard, the forge and the mixed media and the graphic workshop, as well as a number of medium sized studios for painters.
Residents are offered a separate workshop of a size adjusted to their needs.
The workshops are equipped with furnace, compressors, welding equipment, mixer for clay and concrete and a truck with lifting gear. Electric tools, such as drilling machines and other hand tools are available to a limited extent. Residents must bring loose parts, such as chisels, drills and diamond discs. The graphic workshop is equipped with a large printing press and screen printing (see website).
In the sculptor shop, materials can be purchased, primarily for bronze casting. We are of course helpful in purchasing necessary materials and tools.
Using the workshops
The workshops are for professional artists who master the crafts of their profession and the skills necesseary for executing their project. The guest studio’s employees are primarily employed to maintain machinery, tools and buildings and do not provide instruction in technical skills.
But, of course, we are happy to assist in obtaining technical assistance at the resident’s expense. Also, the colleagues are glad to lend a helping hand and share advice and experience.
Alcohol and drug policy
It is allowed to enjoy alcohol on the premises and to smoke outdoors. It is however strictly forbidden to use or be influenced by any substances in the workshops. Any violation of the rules will result in immediate expulsion.
Our facilities are used by both the residents and local artists. The resident can therefore expect a good professional and social network in a living and inclusive environment. However, the number of colleagues wirking in the premisesmay vary in periods.
