Limited Capacity filling up

The Bauhaus was a German art school in the early 20th century that brought about a new style in architecture and design marked by the absence of ornamentation. The movement aimed to reconcile mass production with individual artistic spirit and create harmony between function and design. Much like the Bauhaus Movement united creativity and manufacturing - the Maker Movement aims to achieve similar goals, only here with 21st century technology that is no longer bound to the elite within a particular school, but open to everyone in the community.
The Discovery Corner (DISCO) at El Paso Community College Community has developed a program to provide students, who may think of fabrication machinery to be elusive and complicated, an opportunity to realize their inner maker. We have students and members of the community, with no training in digital fabrication, make all the furniture for an entire new building. The goal and hope is to engage and educate students in the field of digital design fabrication by letting them make human-scale everyday object that they will use and in turn be excited to be autonomous makers themselves.
