You are invited to engage a concept-to-production workflow utilizing both digital and hand making tools. Armed with these skills, we’ll craft novel, functional, and beautiful hand held objects.
To kick off the workshop, each student will be assigned a ‘character’ to translate into a design iteration of a spoon. At the School of Architecture FabLab, students will receive safety training for both digital fabrication and hand-crafting processes. Participants will sketch and iterate their designs, translate outputs digitally to a CNC cut file, and ultimately refine their creations with shop equipment and hand sanding.
The goal of this workshop is to arm you with the knowledge and confidence to continue your academic careers as makers.
No previous design, software, or fabrication skills are necessary. We hope you’ll join us for this unique and fun opportunity to try out the design and prototyping process first-hand!
Faculty and current students will lead the sessions providing you with an opportunity to learn more about our undergraduate programs in Architecture, Design Thinking, Urban + Environmental Planning and Architectural History. Following to the information session, you will receive a guided tour of Campbell Hall led by current students. Information sessions begin at 11am and conclude at 12pm; Tours begin at 12pm and conclude at 1pm.
Interested in seeing the School of Architecture in action? Come visit us during final reviews! Final reviews are a culmination of our students' studio work for the semester, and show off their research and design.
