Skapa läskiga zombies, lifecasts och fantasifulla silikonmasker: Gå en kurs i FX Makeup hos Helsinglight FX Academy

Create scary zombies, lifecasts, and imaginative silicone masks: Take an FX Makeup course at Helsinglight FX Academy.

Do you have a passion for FX makeup, special effects, or creative arts? Are you looking to explore and discover more of your artistic and creative potential? Then you should take a course with us at Helsinglight FX Academy, Sweden. Our creative oasis, Helsinglight, is located in the small village of Vattlång in the beautiful countryside of northern Hälsingland, Sweden, just outside Hudiksvall city(about 2.5 hours north of Stockholm by train). Helsinglight is surrounded by scenic areas with forests, fields, and lakes, a place far away from the noise of the city. We like to call our paradise a creative retreat or a refuge and a much-needed break from reality at times. Simply put;  we are a "Creative Escape".

Develop your artistry with us during a course in FX makeup and practical special effects!

During our courses, you not only get to develop your artistry and creative vein, but you also get inspired by nature, the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate, and awesome, inspiring meetings with like-minded individuals in our beautiful premises. Taking a course with us is a time for learning and at the same time, recovering from the stresses of everyday life. Creativity, knowledge, and recuperation. We see it as an investment for life.

Who can take a course with us? 

We often get the question of who our courses are suitable for and whether you need prior knowledge to take a course with us. Our courses are suitable for beginners and more experienced individuals alike. It's primarily the passion, creativity, and willingness to learn that guide us. For most courses, we also recommend that participants are at least 18 years old since the days are long and intensive.

So, whether you are an aspiring or professional makeup artist, cosplayer, LARPer, or prop maker, our courses can benefit you. Perhaps you currently work as a professional makeup artist focusing on beauty makeup and want to develop and broaden your knowledge in the field of SFX makeup? Or maybe you have makeup and special effects as a hobby and want to learn more just to develop yourself and your hobby further? Perhaps you work in other creative industries such as tattooing, sewing, ceramics, or something else and just want to try something new where your skills can be put to use in new ways. Who knows, maybe you are the biggest movie buff who has always dreamed of getting a behind-the-scenes look and learning more about how to create practical special effect
