About Open Studio
Open Studio Hours are weekly hours monitored by Student Workers in the Maker Arts Space. These are hours available to students, faculty, and staff. Though walk-ins are welcome, each machine has material restrictions and training requirements that you will have to satisfy before using it. If in doubt, please ask. Students and the Maker Arts Space Technician, Kent Watson, are available to help. The hours change each semester and are dependent on student worker schedules. Hours are typically posted the second week of classes and can be found on the maker space website or outside the door of the Maker Arts Space.
