The Laboratory for Wood teaches and studies wood as an artistic medium. It explores wood as a material, investigating its potential and how different types of wood can be treated, processed and shaped for the purpose of art.
Emphasis is placed on issues of construction: how can wood be used to build and create structures? The day-to-day work and classes will be planned and arranged in co-operation with the students.
Health and safety is a key concern: the Laboratory arranges courses on how to safely handle the various machines available for the students’ use.
