Gain mastery over various fabrication techniques as you complete a semester-long project of your choice in a hands-on studio course
This course is designed for students who want to go beyond the introductory skills developed in courses like FORM and MATERIAL to engage in a significant fabrication project over the course of the semester. Students will work with the instructor to develop a set of individual learning goals and project milestones, which will culminate with the presentation of a final project.
In addition to the final project, smaller collaborative assignments will be periodically assigned to develop specific skills in a group setting. While these will vary based on student goals, the course will likely cover woodworking, metalworking, computer aided manufacturing, industrial design and craft-based design.
Students who successfully complete this course will grow in mastery of a specific fabrication skillset of their choosing and develop the planning and scheduling skills needed to execute a large-scale design project over a semester long period.
