More Details

Part of what makes Queensland architecture unique is the individual decorative fretwork seen in many traditional Queensland wooden houses. The State Library of Queensland has made a vast store of historical images available online as part of the ‘Home: a suburban obsession exhibition. In the CNC – Iconic Queenslander Fretworks’ workshop, you’ll learn how to capture a design from an image and turn it into a beautiful object using clever software software tools and modern advanced manufacturing techniques. Choose a design from SLQ’s selection, or bring along your own digital image, and take home a scale model example.
