Create your own breeze block

Get a taste of architectural design and make your own breeze block book ends. Suitable for ages 16 and up.

Breeze blocks are enjoying renewed popularity with architects and builders as both aesthetic and practical solutions for providing comfort in our subtropical climate.

Using a vector drawing program, workshop participants will design a custom breeze block or one inspired by historical images drawn from State Library's collections. We'll take you through the traditional manufacturing method on a reduced scale. You will then cast your breeze block using a plastic mould built on a 3D printer.

There are no special skills required, just bring your creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm to each of the fortnightly workshops to bring your breeze block to life.

This is a 2-part workshop running on 10 & 17 June (you need to be able to come to both dates as the second session builds upon the work of the previous).


  • Participants must be over 16 years of age.

  • Enclosed, flat footwear must be worn at all times.

  • Please become a State Library member before you arrive. If you already have a State Library member account, make sure you know your login details as you may be required to login during the workshop to access State Library computers, and to make bookings for equipment.
