Cooperation Hard Facts
Here is what awaits you

You do the vulva casting,
Vulvarium makes the statue!

Prepare yourself for an impactful journey as we immerse ourselves in a four-day intensive course at our Vulvarium studio located in Graz, Austria.

From Thursday 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. We will also spend a fair bit of time on theoretical knowledge, getting you ready for holding vulva casting sessions with people of all walks of life as well as organising business matters related to our cooperation.

A month later, we will get together once more in a half-day online module to discuss everyone’s progress, share experiences, give feedback, answer questions and catch up on future collaborations and business opportunities.

This course is tailored to participants collaborating with Vulvarium, meaning that the focus lies on conducting professional, safe and empowering vulva casting sessions and on taking flawless silicone molds.

Since Vulvarium will be receiving silicone molds from you by mail and handling the crafting of your clients’ vulva statues, this course does not teach the actual statue-making process or the details of packaging and shipping logistics.

Note that every statue originating from your vulva casting session and with your client’s consent will be added to the Vulvarium gallery -A diverse and inclusive collection of real vulvas that is used internationally to educate on vulva anatomy and diversity. This means that through this collaboration, your work does not only enhance your clients’ connection with their body but also significantly impacts the representation of vulvas worldwide.

A crucial portion of the course is dedicated to organizational aspects, including networking, seizing business opportunities, and strategic marketing initiatives – anything that is of importance for an international cooperation between you and Vulvarium.

A key advantage of our cooperation course is the mutual support offered through the Vulvarium network. This network comprises not only the core team of Vulvarium, their business experts and other Academy graduates but also Vulvarium’s social media following and press connections.

Being part of this collaboration, each participant will be formally introduced on all platforms and they will receive referrals from Vulvarium and the network, connecting them with potential customers. Enhanced visibility and opportunities for business growth is the focus, turning the cooperation into a win:win for everyone.

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’ll 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.

The experience of getting your own vulva cast is very important, as it will let us dive deeper, with transformative exercises, group work and sharing sessions designed to explore your personal relationship with your own vulva, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for your future career as vulva caster.

Lastly, we will explore the business side of things. We will guide you to generate a lucrative source of income for yourself, tapping into our international network and discussing future business opportunities and collaborations.

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.

Included in the course price is your very own vulva statue which will be finished by the Vulvarium team in the design and colour of your choice and shipped to your doorstep.

We want you to start casting right away once you get home. This is why you will also receive a vulva casting starter kit that contains everything you need for your first five casting sessions.

Included are:

  • Silicone for five casting sessions
  • Plaster bandages for five casting sessions
  • Data protection sheets (print & PDF)
  • Colour selection set
  • Vulvarium merch
  • 78 Vulva poster

Participants of our cooperation course can further grow their vulva casting business by becoming an official Vulvarium representative, meaning that you will be allowed to perform vulva castings under the brand name Vulvarium.

With the help of our business experts and the use of shared branding, photography, booking and management tools as well as marketing strategies, press appearances and networking contacts, the advanced course “Vularium Representative” focuses on making you as successful as possible on a business level.

The investment for our cooperation course is 3.900€, which can be paid in installments. This fee includes all course materials and scripts, the starter kit with materials for five vulva castings, your own vulva statue including shipping to your doorstep 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.
