Within the academy's curriculum, the processes of creating, researching and reflecting are inextricably linked. 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; here concepts are developed into tangible projects and products.

The Rietveld Academie has a great number of workshops and a library at its disposal for Rietveld Adacemie and Sandberg Instituut students. Some of these workshops are for general use, and some are reserved for certain departments.

Students can go to reservations.rietveldacademie.nl to see all the workshops to book specific machines or facilities.
