Tour the newly opened Teaching Workshop at VCA’s Faculty of Fine Art and Music where students can explore a range of processes from Bronze casting to set and prop building, ceramics and digital machines.
In 2015, the Victorian College of the Arts’ Teaching Workshop on the University of Melbourne’s Southbank campus was refurbished and reimagined as a cutting-edge research facility where manufacturing outcomes are unlimited.
The workshop now accommodates specific process spaces, including a central construction area, a welding and foundry room, a wet mould room, and a wood machining shop including a special sanding room.
The Teaching Workshop features state-of-the-art facilities for students to create and collaborate, and is designed to safely accommodate a range of low, medium and high-risk activities within a strict Occupational Health and Safety framework.
