This course focuses on both of these and delivers the knowledge required to deliver stage 4 projects with confidence.
3. River Pours - $550
**No priority registration - first in, best dressed**
Have you always wanted to know the Tips & Tricks of doing River Pours?
How to get rid of those pesky air bubbles in Pour on finishes?
Or how to achieve great finishes using recycled timber?
What products and requirements for internal and external conditions?
This workshop will give you all the Tips & Tricks and correct products to do River Pours and more. By doing your own projects you will be loaded up with heaps of techniques for working with recycled and new timber for making unique woodwork projects. You will gain Tips & Tricks on how to take very ordinary pieces of timber from fence palings to slab timber and turn them into one-off masterpieces.
The plan is for you to bring manageable pieces of 2nd hand timber with you to play with over the two days. We will do the pouring / Epoxy coating on Thursday and finishing on Friday.

The additional cost covers the supply of a Thin Air Vacuum Press Kit, mould and pre cut Canadian Rock Maple veneers. This will give you a completed deck and the equipment to manufacture boards at school as well as simple but useful moulds for vacuum forming, including projects beyond the skateboard. You will also need to bring your own block plane. As this will be used in the construction of the board.
Do you think that SketchUp is a ‘Toy’ CAD program that no professional would ever touch? Did you know that NASA use SketchUp? So do many architectural and engineering firms. This is freeware. Don’t know how to start using SketchUp? Have you played around with SketchUp but feel that you have missed some basic tips, shortcuts, page set ups?
Art Metal Work/Jewellery - Stage 4 and 5 $500
This course is intended for those who have never done silver jewellery making before and are looking to introduce it as a Stage 4 option in Technology Mandatory. You will learn how to make a plain silver ring, a twisted ring and a pendant in sterling silver. This is taught from metalworking principles and can be taught in a metalwork room with basic tools.
Taking your laser to the next level $400
In this course you will be introduced to laser cutting and how it could be implemented into a Stage 5 Project, which you will create and take with you, there will also be demonstrating and displaying examples of how to take laser cutting to the next level (how to get that perfect gap-free fit when laser cutting). In this course you will be shown:
- how to use a range of programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator (for laser cutting) along with the laser cutting software to manipulate and refine your design to get that perfect fit, from the raw image you have drawn or downloaded, into the perfect veneer
This workshop will be presented by Tony Wright. Tony is considered one of the leaders in his field for creating elegant laser cut marquetry designs on skateboards and timber boxes. He has over 20 years of experience as a Coordinator of Industrial Arts and as a teacher of Design and Technology. He is passionate about inspiring students with "Kid cool projects" that utilise the technology that is becoming more embedded into our curriculum and will teach you the skills to take your students projects to that next level.
If your school doesn't currently have a laser cutter, then this is a perfect time and opportunity to complete a laser inspired project to take back and show your Principal, the Executive and the P & C about the fantastic opportunities and projects that could inspire your students and introduce them to the Technology of the 21st Century. It will also be a great opportunity to collaborate with local schools and fellow teachers who may be willing to assist you and your senior students to incorporate these skills and techniques into their projects.
Etextiles and Natural Dyeing $450
