At Båghallarna we have fully equipped workshops for work with advanced molding, metal, plastics and silicone. In addition to our own modern workshops the academy also has a well developed collaboration with workshops in Malmö. For example at Monumentalverkstaden we can work with bronze and aluminium casting and at Digitala Bildverkstaden with 3D printing. We think it is important that the future artists already during training may establish contact with the professional resources available outside of the academy.

For the moment there is no storage room for students works etc. You need to store your things in your studio. For safety reasons you are not allowed to store anything in corridors or common spaces. For temporary storage of boards there are shelves outside the wood-workshop.
Students are admitted to the workshops only after training in how to use the machines and equipment. During the first weeks of fall semester, All first year students will during the first weeks be taught how to use the computers and software in the computer room and the video editing tools in the video editing room. All new students are also trained to use the machines in the wood workshop. Admission to the workshops is granted after the student has completed a course in a specific technique.
The general policy is that working alone must be limited as much as possible. Working alone in connection with hazardous work is not allowed at Malmö Art Academy. It is of greatest importance that you are attentive to the risk of working alone by the machines in the wood workshop and in all workshops in Båghallarna. Always inform the responsible technician if you intend to work in the wood workshop or if you intend to use machines classified as risky in Båghallarna. Do not hesitate to contact the technician if you have any questions or concerns.
