About Design Fabrication Labs (wood and general fabrication)
Please note: due to Covid-19, some of the locations may currently have safety measures in place, and be subject to reduced hours and capacity. Find out about changes on campus on our dedicated Covid-19 webpages.
As a Design student, you’ll have access to the Department’s Fabrication and Computing Labs to enable you to realise your projects, experiment with real and virtual materialities, and develop the technical understanding necessary to your evolution as a designer.
This is the Wood and General Fabrication Lab. A large and bright space hosting a range of tailored equipment to support work in wood-based materials, model making and larger scale construction.
Other facilities include:
- Ceramics, Moulding & Casting Labs
- Plastic fabrication Lab
- Textiles Lab (with facilities for sewing, digital embroidery, screen printing & vinyl cutting)
- Metal workshop
- Digital fabrication Lab (including laser cutting, 3D printing, scanning and cnc equipment)
These Lab spaces are the setting for both open-access making and the teaching of course related modules. They are a place where you can undertake project work, exploring your ideas through making and push your practice beyond traditional design outcomes.
At all times you’ll be supported by a team of highly skilled and experienced makers and practitioners who will not only guide and support but also encourage you to develop a critical approach to your engagement with materials and making.
You will also have your own studio space, a base for you to develop your design practice.
All of these facilities and spaces are in the Lockwood Building, at the heart of the Goldsmiths campus. Students on our MA Design: Expanded Practice also undertake work in a satellite site, currently in Deptford Bridge (10 minutes’ walk from New Cross).
