The TIMARA makerspace provides students with the tools and space to learn about electronics and interactive media, to tinker, and to design and fabricate whatever they can imagine.
Courses taught in the makerspace touch on themes including computer aided design, digital fabrication, electronics, electronic textiles, sound art installation, new interfaces for musical expression, and human cyborgs, among others.
The makerspace is home to a craft cutter which we use to make flexible circuits and vinyl stickers, a desktop mill for making your own circuit boards, a 3D printer, an embroidery machine, a sewing machine, and a laser cutter.
You can stop by the makerspace for a soldering or Cricut craft cutter workshop, to learn a new skill, or to work on a project for a lesson, a class, or just for fun.
The space is also home to the department’s undergraduate research lab, the Crafting Sound Lab, directed by TIMARA’s technical director Abby Aresty.
