Weird and wonderful workshops set for CDU Open Day 

Learn the art of Lino-Cut Print-Making at CDU’s Open Day

It won’t be necessary to wrestle a croc to get a closer look at their inner workings during dissection workshops at Charles Darwin University’s upcoming Open Day.

Led by the Tertiary Enabling Program theme leader, George Lambrinidis, the croc workshops will allow novice biologists the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with these fascinating reptiles during a real-time laboratory dissection.

“The crocodile dissection workshop gives people an insight into the laboratory techniques required of students in science disciplines,” Mr Lambrinidis said.

Open Day will include plenty of other workshops for prospective students and members of the public to indulge their interests, from making hand cream to exploring the rhythms of African drumming.

The Lino-Cut Print-Making workshops will take a hands-on approach to teaching the centuries-old printing process of chine-collé, whereby a customised lino-cut is created and used to apply a design to Japanese paper. Budding print-makers will be able to take their one- of-a-kind masterpiece home with them.

The CDU Open Day will take place at the Casuarina campus on Sunday 26 August from 10am to 3pm. Workshop spaces are limited, so sign up at
