3D Materials workshop

Like all Kingston School of Art's workshops, our large 3D facility is available six days a week, giving students significant freedom for developing their work. They are supported by highly‐engaged and skilled technicians.

Students work here in familiar materials ‐ wood, metal, stone, plastic, plaster, bio ‐ resins, wax and ceramics. But the studio equally supports work in new and emerging technology such as CAD, 3D printing and Arduino. People use the studio for anything from making work to prototyping.

We have invested heavily in the workshop and its equipment recently and it now features:

  • A forge and foundry
  • Traditional and digital metalworking facilities, including a welding bay
  • Model‐making space, for wood, plastic and experimental materials
  • A woodworking mill
  • A ceramics studio and plaster room
  • Hackspace ‐ a digital suite including 3D scanning and printing, CAD and Arduino Zund plotters and cutters, laser engraving and CNC milling
  • An inter-isciplinary construction area
  • Two fashion workshops, one each for knitting and sewing. Knitting includes domestic to digital knitting equipment and sewing allows access to industrial and specialist sewing and clothing fabrication machines.

The 3D workshop is available to all Kingston School of Art students, regardless of discipline studied.
