Breezeblocks are enjoying renewed popularity with architects and builders as both aesthetic and practical solutions for providing comfort in our subtropical climate. Why not dip your toe into the property market, starting with making your own breezeblock bookends? 

Using a vector drawing program, workshop participants will design a custom breezeblock – or one inspired by historical images drawn from the State Library of Queensland collection – based upon traditional manufacturing methods, but at a reduced scale. You will then cast your breezeblock using a plastic mould built on one of our 3D printers. 

The workshop comprises two sessions held on two consecutive Saturdays. Please ensure you can attend both dates as the second session builds upon the work of the previous session.
