Annual Appeal 2017: Workbenches

Can you help us build heavy-duty workbenches for the Southern Courtyard? 

At present there is no external infrastructure at our campus. We are committed to providing the best possible resources for our staff and students, which is why we have embarked on a major building project to greatly enhance the outdoor facilities in the School’s Southern Courtyard.

This project will provide secure covered work-spaces and storage, enabling our students to work outside and create larger, more ambitious, work all year round. In addition, the new facilities, designed by Skein Architects, will enable the Sculpture Department to conduct casting and clay modelling classes in a more appropriate environment.

But before our students can use this exciting new space, we need your help.

To complete the Southern Courtyard, we need to raise enough funds to build seven heavy-duty workbenches. These benches have been purpose-designed with robust steel frames and strong castors for students to work on with a range of materials including timber, metal, wax and clay.

The cost of these workbenches is $20,000. We have secured 50% of the funds through support from Hotel Care Community Projects, but we still need your help to raise the remaining $10,000 by the end of the financial year.

Can you help us build our workbenches for the Southern Courtyard?

All donors will be invited to an exclusive tour of the Southern Courtyard and celebration event to view the workbenches once they are completed. Gifts of $1000 and above will be acknowledged on our Donor Board and in the 2017 Graduate Exhibition catalogue. 

Your generous support will be greatly appreciated and will make a difference to our students and the delivery of our sculpture classes.
