Enduring Design Workshop 2022

Our Enduring Design Workshop series with the Uni of QLD aims to provide students with a practical understanding of heritage trades.

Tried and tested traditional design and trades skills have responded to local cultural and climatic conditions for thousands of years, producing buildings and urban landscapes that are sustainable, durable, and foster local character and regional diversity.

Our Enduring Design Workshop series aims to provide Built Environment students, apprentices and professionals with a practical understanding of the sustainable practice of traditional building knowledge. Last month, we teamed up with the University of Queensland's School of Architecture to continue the Enduring Design Series with bricklaying and stonemasonry workshops held at the Brickworks' Rochedale plant.

Students learnt from expert craftsmen Maurice Potrzeba from Mozbiz and Steve Sullivan from TAFE QLD, and got hands-on working directly with traditional materials and building techniques.

Prince’s Trust Australia and the University of Queensland will continue the enduring workshop series throughout 2022 and will hold the Enduring Design Masterclass in July; a winter intensive programme demonstrating Enduring Design Principles for building Sustainable Communities.
