The Sculpture Workshop provides courses and facilities for students of sculpture to explore all aspects of traditional and contemporary sculptural practice. Courses aim to prepare students for careers as practising artists and are offered at both graduate and undergraduate levels. With the expertise of its academic staff, advanced technical facilities, and location close to Australia’s national collecting institutions, the ANU School of Art Sculpture Workshop provides an excellent environment for study and research.



The workshop is well-resourced and provides for the necessary range of skills and processes encompassed by the program. Facilities exist for students to explore a broad range of media and techniques including wood and stone carving, modelling, and casting in metal, cement fondue and plaster. Metal fabrication is assisted by a comprehensive range of tools including MIG, TIG oxyacetylene and stick welders, metal bender, guillotine, oxy-cutting equipment, and forging facilities. Construction in timber and related media is supported by a wood working studio housing drill presses, bench, band and radial arm saws, sanders etc. The workshop has a number of spaces which may be used for drawing, viewing of work, and installation-based practice. Students can also access the resources of other workshops within the School and University.
