The metal workshop is equipped for wrought ironwork, sheet metal, and other common metalworking techniques. Adjoining the metal workshop is a sound-proofed shop for grinding and cutting. The metalworking machinery maintains a high standard, enabling students to work in most metals, including iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, bronze and brass.

Besides producing metal sculptures, the workshop is also used for making metal supports, bases, stands, reinforcements etc.


There are four welding courses each year for the students at The Royal Institute of Art. The courses provide insights into the skilled art of combining metals. Individual supervision is available at other times.

During term-time, workshops and study visits are organized as required.

All of the larger machines may only be used by students certified as competent to use them by the responsible instructor in the metal workshop.
