Technical Design Studio

The Technical Design Studio is an academic support unit of the College of Art and Architecture. Shop and fabrication activities play an important role in the College of Art and Architecture’s course curriculum. The studio is a fully functional wood shop and digital fabrication lab where all CAA students can develop fabrication skills and realize their design goals.

Training and Shop Safety Orientation

Shop safety is the highest priority within the Technical Design Studio. A culture of safety must always be present for the shop to function successfully. Students of the College of Art and Architecture must complete the studio's safety training and attend a shop safety presentation before accessing the shop. Safety training and presentations are coordinated with class instructors at the beginning of each semester. If you miss the required training, please email uitechshop@uidaho.edu.
