Next to our own specialised instructors and workshops you can now have access to an even wider variety of industry standard tools, which expand the possibilities offered by the academy's own workshop facilities. As a student of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague you get 50% discount when using technical support in any of the companies within our external workshop facilities network.

Our workshop instructors are eager to help you with your projects but sometimes you might need a different technique or bigger machinery to realise your artistic ideas and design concepts. For these occasions and when it is too busy at the academy's own facilities, you can make use of this network.

Our external workshop facilities network

The companies mentioned below (more will be added soon) are willing to help you; and the academy offers you 50% discount when using their services.

This arrangement applies throughout the year with the exception of the summer period from 12 July to 26 August; we also assume a fair use policy.

Please note that the discount applies to machine use and not to material or transportation costs.

As always, it’s wise to have a liability insurance when working with expensive machines.
