The Workshop "die werkstatt"

The competence and service centre of the HKB`s Department of Design and Fine Arts. The address for technological and technical questions as well as related thematic issues.


The members of "werkstatt" offer teaching events and supervise projects conducted by teachers as well as students. They collaborate on projects, support the realisation of pieces and ideas and offer consultations on materials purchases.


There is extensive infrastructure available, suitable for working with wood, plastic, metal and textiles, as well as for realising university-internal projects.


Small machinery and tools are available for hire. However, for security reasons, heavy machinery can only be used by trained persons (Specialised module "Werkstatteinführung", an introduction to the workshop).
