Teaching Workshop

In 2015, the 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 accomodate a range of low, medium and high-risk activities within a strict Occupational Health and Safety framework.
