About the 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. We welcome students of all levels of shop experience and pride ourselves on facilitating your exploration and curiosity.
