Facilities on AFAD


At each of our departments, you can use specific devices – the well-equipped workshops offer variety of technologies, such as welding, bronze casting, 3D print, 3D hub, video recording and editing, digital technologies, glass and ceramic-making, jewellery and textile techniques, and more. The wooden frames and other small-size wooden works, the casting of different materials or the various metallic details are carried out by technical staff and are administered at respective studios. Students are not allowed to use the devices and work in the workshop on their own. The use of materials as well as the conditions of payment for the work accomplished by technical staff have to be negotiated with the respective teacher beforehand, and eventually covered by the student.
