Hi, my name is Sigridur Helga Hauksdottir or Sigga for short. I live in Reykjavik Iceland. I am an artist and designer, I work freelance but I also teach. I have been teaching at the Icelandic Art Academy for the last 10 years. There I mainly teach mold making techniques with plaster. I also teach at Reykjavik Art School and at Reykjavík's Adult Educational center, where I´m head of the Art's department. I teach among other things silversmithing, graphic design, drawing, silk screen printing, wood carving , ceramics and glass. Lately I have been teaching some groups in the Reykjavik FabLab and I am joining the Fab Academy to become a better instructor for my students.
I have a background in education, the arts, crafts and design. My first professional job was in teaching, but I went on to do further studies in 3-dimensional design and metalwork. I also completed an MA in site-specific sculpture. I worked for some years as a designer in the gaming industry, but have since been employed in various fields, such as web editing and development, content mangagement for software development and quality assurance. I am currently studying for a PhD in education and can see various possibilities in applying the Fabacademy experience within the field of design education.
