Design and Architecture studio workshops (September)

Design and Architecture hands-on workshops for Year 10-12 at our Caulfield Campus in the school holidays


You are invited to attend our hands-on workshops at Monash Art, Design and Architecture at our Caulfield Campus to get a taste of studying with us as part of our creative community.

Students considering studying Design will have the opportunity to further explore the user-centred design processes and thinking.

For students considering Architecture, you will be able to learn more about architectural studio environment within Architecture when you study with us.

We will run a session in the morning and a repeat session so you have the choice of choosing one of the session times that suits you. Register now to reserve your place as spaces are limited.


  • Please only register for the times and workshops you will be attending.
  • Both Design and Architecture workshops will run repeat sessions on the day so please only register once for each discipline workshop.
  • For students attending both sessions, we will be providing some light lunch (optional) or you are welcome to try some of the food providers around the university. Please also bring your own water bottle on the day.

Workshop Program:

Design Project: form, function, fun

27 September, 10am –12.30pm or 1pm – 3.30pm (repeat session)

In this workshop participants will understand the importance of considering ‘who’ is the ultimate user of our designs. Whether it’s a space, a product or a website, understanding how designers engage with the needs of their end-user is vitally important. Through a fun, participatory and collaborative workshop, participants will generate a design outcome that answers the needs of their user, then demonstrate to others how it meets their needs.

Architecture Making Workshop 1

27 September, 10am –12.30pm or 1pm – 3.30pm (repeat session)

Come to Monash Architecture to discover how we teach our students to put architectural ideas to work. In this workshop, we will introduce you to what it is like to be an architecture student through a series of making activities in our studio spaces.

We run multiple workshops each year and they’re designed to build on one another through different materials and prompts, giving you a unique experience whether you’ve already attended a workshop in the past or if this is the first time you’re joining us. Join us to:

  • Experience the architecture studio environment
  • Explore materials, scale, site and other architectural considerations
  • Meet our exceptional architectural staff

We will also include a short tour of our architecture spaces during the workshop.

You must not come to campus if you’re unwell or a household contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
