Creative Fabrication, Minor
The creative fabrication minor is comprised of a suite of courses that introduces the student to studio principles and practices that will inform the creative, intuitive, and critical processes that are vital when realizing ideas into physical material form.
The minor is designed to train and prepare the student with a skill set of traditional and emerging tools and methods for inventing, fabricating, constructing, shaping, and prototyping innovative work in a wide range of materials for a variety of products, places, and purposes. This minor offers the challenge of creating a project that demonstrates and tests the student’s competence with the making of artifacts that align with the intentions and aspirations of the maker.
