General information about the workshops
The Workshops at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts give students and staff the opportunity to work with a great variety of materials and techniques, both traditional and modern. Most workshops are open to all students and staff after a completed safety course and introduction - a few resources are tied directly to certain departments, and some tools are operated by the workshop master only. Check the individual webpages for more information.

Visitors to the Workshops
The workshops at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts are meant for students and staff to produce works as part of their studies and research (KUF). In general only staff and students from KHiO - including part time teachers - have access to the workshops, but there are some exceptions to this rule. Some workshops do work on commission, and some staff members may invite assistants or collaborators to work with them on research projects. Such assistants must have completed a safety course and/or be approved by the workshop master. Access for visitors must be accounted for and approved by a staff member, and access for other reasons than those given here must be approved by the workshop master, or in some cases - by the Director.
Staff members may not use the workshops for their own private projects, and they may not invite others to use the workshops for anything not directly related to studies or research.
