This topic-based course takes the form of a studio-based workshop led by a specialist practitioner or practitioners in the visual arts. It provides the opportunity for students to undertake interdisciplinary study in a focused area of studio practice under the tutelage of a leader in the field. Workshop Atelier aims to utilise the skills of visiting artists to the School of Art, or to tap the specific skills of existing staff, in projects designed to expand the technical and conceptual skills of students that can then be applied and developed in their own studio discipline.


This course may be delivered as a semester length course or offered as an intensive.


This course is repeatable for credit, up to a maximum of 24 units, and if repeated must be repeated with a different topic each time.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of techniques, processes and concepts taught as part of the course;
  2. synthesise new techniques and concepts with their established studio-based skills; and
  3. show awareness of historical and theoretical contexts relevant to the course.

Other Information

The information below is relevant to the topic Casting Glass and Ceramics offered in Semester 1, 2021.


In this course, you will learn how conventional and emerging forming processes can be creatively applied to the ideation and execution of ceramics and glass objects for the built environment. Guided by a thematic brief, this course will broadly engage issues of multiplicity, hybridity and singularity in contemporary practice. The course addresses traditions as well as contemporary technologies, exploring their limits and potentials, integrations and divergences across the fields of glass and ceramics.

It focuses on the creative development and use of formers and moulds as a means of making ceramic and glass objects. Conventional and digital approaches to ideation, form-finding, and making include 3D modelling by hand, CAD, or scanning. The realisation of individual projects employs various moulding and forming methods and media including clay, wax, plaster, metal, and wood. Processes applicable to serial production or one-off objects and sculptural outcomes include pouring, melting, slumping, inflating or extruding.
