Open State: VCA Workshop

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.


Open State is presented by Open House Melbourne as part of Melbourne Design Week—an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV. Find out more about Melbourne Design Week here.
