Fabrication Shops

Fabrication shop featuring woodworking equipment and other tools

The College of Design Fabrication Shops are open labs where students enrolled in a College of Design course have access to equipment and support to work on assigned projects. Our spaces include a woodshop, metal shop, digital fabrication tools, and a materials store. Our staff members are well-versed in many kinds of making and enthusiastic about learning alongside you. We welcome students of all levels of shop experience and pride ourselves on facilitating your exploration and curiosity. Your safety is our top priority, so please ask us questions!
