The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is an international university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design in Amsterdam (NL). It is home to a close-knit community of international students from across the world. Students and teachers jointly create an environment for learning that brings together thinking and doing. This is where unexpected, innovative ideas are born.

The academy has twenty workshops at its disposal. Some of these are for general use and others are specific to particular departments. The workshops enable students to experiment with different techniques and materials and provide the opportunity to learn to use professional equipment. They form the very heart of the academy.
