    The Spaces and equipment sections can be studied based on your needs. For example, if you don't need a Dyeing Studio, you can skip the section. The work permission to different facilities is given based on your choices.

    In this course a student will:

    • Familiarize her/himself about workshop spaces and equipment.
    • Learn important information about working safety.
    • Learn practicalities and rules about working environment and -methods.
