Facilities and technical support

Latest Update 5/8/2020:

We are currently in discussion about the support we will be able to provide in Stage 4 Lockdown. As soon as we have a clear plan and approval the details will be updated on this site. Please check this site for the latest developments regularly.

Workshop and technical support available in the time of COVID-19 is outlined below.

Technical support

Our technical team are available to help you weekdays from 9am – 5pm AEST. You can request a video, phone or email consultation. No matter what stage your project is at, we can help… just let us know what you need. Select the appropriate workshop page below and complete the linked consultation form.

Digital fabrication workshop (dFab)

We have launched a digital fabrication bureau service for Art, Design and Architecture students, enabling you to submit digital files for production. When completed, you will be able to collect pieces from dFab or potentially have them posted to your home. For more information, see the dFab page below.

Other workshops and facilities

We also provide a bureau service for our other facilities, including the wood and metal workshops (WaM), paper and image-based studios, photography and hot workshops. Organise this directly with the technicians – select the appropriate workshop page below, complete the linked consultation form, and they will let you know what is possible.

Audio visual equipment loans

If you require AV equipment for a specific unit, your lecturer will have already organised this for you. Please contact them with any questions.

Staff: Request a Zoom (or other) technical demonstration for your unit - here
