Maker Space: Metals


Dream it and make it!

Come explore the world of making in a collaborative and creative environment. Our studios provide a community of members that feed inspiration and support making. Maker Space Metals is designed for experienced artists and makers who have the independent skills necessary to bring their ideas to fruition. You will have access to our Open Studio hours and select equipment, following all policies and procedures required in each department and studio. After approval of your Maker Space request from a studio manager and department head, you will be given an orientation on policies, equipment safety and clean-up to ensure success in our studios. 

Please note that fees do not cover materials. Any materials being brought in by students must have prior approval for use.

Electroformers in the chemical room are not available to Maker Space students.

The Metals Studio has a buddy-system policy for safety, so there is never just one student working in the studio at a time. You may not work alone in the studio. Every effort will be made to help you connect to other students for arranging time and schedules for the buddy-system policy.

Maker Space students have access to the studios when there are no classes in session or when additional space is available during classes. Equipment availability is dependent on OCAC Program needs.

Prerequisites: All Maker Space students are required to have taken workshops and classes at OCAC and have been trained specifically on OCAC's equipment. All Maker Space students are required to have prior experience, be self-sufficient and demonstrate safe and responsible use of equipment. Students must be at an intermediate/advanced skill level. Students are selected based on skill level, safety, responsibility, positive community member and project ideas. Registration is contingent upon approval and space availability.
