Here is what awaits you

You do the vulva casting & you make the statue!

Prepare yourself for an immersive journey as we embark on a four-and-a-half-day intensive course at our Vulvarium studio located in Graz, Austria.

From Wednesday to Sunday, our days will be dedicated to hands-on practice, both as a group and individually, from 9:00 to approximately 18:00, with a lunchbreak at noon and an earlier wrap-up on Sunday. Throughout these days, we will guide you through each step of the craft –  from perfecting your molds to sculpting stunning vulva statues.

Additionally, ample time will be dedicated to theoretical knowledge, equipping you to conduct vulva casting sessions with individuals from all walks of life, and addressing essential business matters crucial for your future endeavors in this field.

This course is designed for everyone who wants to explore their own approach towards vulva casting as a profession, representing their own brand and business and therefore working fully independent from Vulvarium.

We will share all the knowledge we have accumulated over the years with you and explain our way of doing things, creating a fundament for you to build on. After completing the course, we absolutely encourage everyone to discover their own approach, try new techniques and casting session setups.

If of interest, we are open to collaborating business to business with referals, sales of materials and products and more. This only applies to vulva casters who represent our values and quality standards, shining through professionalism and empathy.

If you change your mind and want to become a Vulvarium representative, there is a possibility to do so. Simply contact us for information on our Switch Me courses.

In this course, you’ll dive into the fascinating art of vulva casting, equipping you with the skills to create stunning replicas of your clients’ vulvas. Through specialized body casting techniques, you will learn to capture every tiny detail—from shapes and sizes to textures and unique features like moles and scars while also fostering a safe and welcoming atmosphere, professionally holding the space for any emotions that may arise during the process.

Throughout the course, you will gain comprehensive knowledge of both the materials and techniques involved in vulva casting. You will have plenty of opportunities to practice by casting other participants and you will also experience the beauty and vulnerability of the process when it’s your turn to be cast.

Once you have mastered the mold making, we will continue to the captivating art of statue making. Over various hours of hands-on practice, you will learn the intricate steps of pouring, shaping, drying, refining, and embellishing your creations with paint or metal finishes. Be prepared for a lot of dust, sweat and fun.

Lastly, we will explore the business side of things, sharing our expertise in the field of vulva casting. Topics will range from data protection and logistics to social media content and networking.

To complete your course and receive your certificate, you will take on the challenge of holding a vulva casting session with a stranger. This final exam will allow you to show what you have learned, creating a beautiful mold while integrating the conversational tools and theoretical knowledge acquired throughout the course.

The investment for our Autonomy course is 5.900€, which can be paid in installments. This fee includes all course materials and scripts, various of your own vulva castings to take home with as well as a beautiful certificate of completion. Small snacks and drinks during breaks are also covered by this fee.

Please note that expenses related to travel, accommodation and meals are excluded from the price.
