What happens when a group of experienced design professionals and passionate design educators come together to solve a common problem: “How do we teach industry-relevant skills in a vibrant, student-responsive environment?” The answer: Pumphouse School of Design.


Pumphouse is focused on providing the kind of skills training creative students can't access anywhere else in the Newcastle region. Their teachers bring award-winning educational standards, real-life design expertise, strong connections to prominent regional industry practitioners, and a history of wanting to maintain strong industry relevant skills.


Pumphouse launched in September with short courses in design industry specialist areas and will branch out in 2016 with an extended range  of courses, along with a program of one day workshops and guest speaker events.


The brainchild of six design passionate co-founders including local Hamilton design company professionals Shane Williams and Vanessa Anton of Fivespice Creative, Pumphouse has been purpose-designed to maximise creativity and learning.
