Fretwork, casement windows, VJ walls and hardwood floors; there’s a lot to love about Queensland architecture!

In this four-part workshop, you will create a miniature piece of Queensland architecture. It could be part of a doll’s house, a book nook, a mini façade or diorama. The possibilities are limitless!

Join our experienced facilitators as we dive into State Library of Queensland’s collections and bring to life the rich histories of the houses around us through digital fabrication techniques such as laser cutting and engraving.  

During this workshop you will:  

  • learn to create vector files suitable for the laser cutter in free and open-source software (Inkscape)
  • learn how to use the laser cutter and cut your files  
  • decorate and assemble your creation 
  • explore the collections here at State Library of Queensland

Please note, you must be able to come to all the dates as each session builds upon the work of the previous.  

There are no special skills required, just bring your creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm.
