Studio

Here are some descriptions of our facilities and studio based work here in Kuggen, and also som regulations.

High and Low
We have two studios on floor two in Kuggen, they are named High and Low. These can be used at all times by the students, and contain kitchen, wood workshop, painting room, electric workshop, 3D printer, color printer and loads of different design materials. High is available as a design studio at all times, while Low is sometimes used for lectures. In order for you to use the machines and chemicals, you should read and sign a security regulation sheet (see instructions below).

It is up to the students that the studios looks ok, and that things are placed where they are intended to. There is a studio manager, who makes sure that we have all the materials needed, and to whom you can report about things you wish or things that do not work.

Group rooms:
Need a group room?
There are basically 2 options

Routines for 3D printer
All plans for using the 3D printer should be cleared with a teacher. When the teacher has accepted, the studio manager should be responsible for the actual printing and handling of the machine.

Routines for materials in locked closets
A teacher, technical assistant or studio manager is responsible for the use of the materials and technology stored in the locked closets, and they also have the key.

Routines for soldering
Soldering is only permitted inside the electric workshop and the wood workshop rooms in High.
