This course teaches students advanced skills in woodwork and metal work in the context of their research in contemporary sculpture and installation art, and object design. The skills acquired will expand students' proficiency beyond the basic workshop skills taught in Sculpture, Performance and Installation and Design courses and induct students in the use of more complex and/or specialised machinery. The new skills are applied to students' creative projects, including self initiated contemporary artworks, to ensure practical and creative outcomes. An integral aspect of the course is an understanding of the variety of materials associated with advanced technologies. There is an emphasis on learning how to plan a fabricated art or design work, on how to manage a project, on how to determine the best tools and materials for a task, and the best methods to realise creative ideas.

The prerequisite basic skills are the use of the belt sander, drill press, bandsaw, sheet metal machinery and oxy welding.
