Studios, Working Environment and Other Resources

The wood design area is divided into three large room spaces.  The studio section provides approximately 12’ x 12’ work spaces for each graduate student, and undergraduate wood design major, with a wall cabinet and individual woodworkers bench. There is another room that serves as a common space for beginning level classes and all non-power tool use as well as a general tool cabinet, flammables storage and glue up area.  The most active area is a room dedicated to all stationary power tools.  A dust collection system is in place and there are storage rooms for students to store hardwoods and works in progress.  Graduate assistants supervise studios during evening and weekend hours.  Across the hall from the studio wood shop is the School of Art and Design woodshop, a well-equipped, supervised facility that all students in the School of Art and Design are able to use. All areas within the School of Art and Design encourage interdisciplinary work and students have access to other studio classes such as metalworking, sculpture, photography, painting, ceramics, printmaking or computer aided design.
