Engelsholm Folk High School for Arts and Music presents FormLab, a form laboratory for glass, ceramics, plaster and concrete. FormLab is inspired by SuperFormLab established at The School of Design in Copenhagen.
The purpose of FormLab is to work with a wide field of applications of materials, ranging from the design of everyday objects to architectural components, sculptures and decorations.
It is now possible to include a variety of materials into an individual project. This allows you to either immerse yourself into one material at a time, or test and combine different materials such as ceramics or glass.
You may be considering an education in art, design, architecture or crafts, or you may simply have a passion for these subjects – then FormLab is for you. As a student at the school’s FormLab you have access to workshops in the areas of: ceramics, glass blowing, cold glass, plaster, screen printing, as well as the opportunity for 3D printing. You get your own workplace, and you have access to it around the clock.
Teachers are professionals, artists, designers and craftsmen. The permanent teachers at FormLab are ceramist Morten Cramer, and glass designer Amalie Larsen. Besides that you will be taught by guest lecturers from around Denmark and abroad.
We have continual dialogues with educators from institutions such as the School of Design in Copenhagen and Bornholm, from whom we have gotten much valuable feedback and advice in developing and realizing our FormLab subject.
You have to choose between different workshops, which are on Friday mornings. The Friday Workshops allow you to explore an area that you encounter in your main subject during your stay, or an area within another main subject.
The Friday Workshops contain Drawing as a continuous subject. You can also choose other subjects. The other subjects are chosen for short periods of 2 or 3 weeks, and are characterized by working in depth with a single area within auditive or visual disciplines. Examples of workshops could be Music History, Mixing for Nerds, Artist Books or Croquis.
