Fabrication Studio


About this class

In this class, we will explore solving problems with fabrication. We will be creating 3d models of possible solutions and then making them out of cardboard, plastic, wood and other materials.

Class participants will have the option to be certified on the 3d printer and laser cutter so that they can use these tools independently.
