CCA Maker's Commons

The Maker’s Commons is an online community space hosted by CCA’s studio management team. "This “virtual shop” is intended to provide opportunities for casual cross-discipline conversation, learning, and collaboration in much the same way how collaborating outside the classroom environment within on-campus studios can allow students from Design, Architecture, Fine Arts, and the First Year Program a chance to interact, learn, and work together.

The Maker’s Commons will be a venue for the casual, fun, and social learning experiences that happen in our shops, studios, and labs: live demonstrations, direct access to studio staff and experienced peers, tips about tools and materials, and conversations about critical concerns like sustainability and supporting diversity in our maker culture.
