Shops & Labs

The Link between Seaton Hall and Seaton Court is home to the APDesign wood and metals shop available to all APDesign students. The shop has equipment such as laser cutters and a large CNC router. These tools help students produce their design ideas.

Students must complete the required shop training to use the equipment. They also have access to the expertise of a teaching technician, who helps to ensure safe use of the machines and equipment in the shops.

The Interior Architecture & Product Design furniture design workshops include fabrication opportunities with metal, wood, glass, upholstery, plastic, and more, giving students the hands-on opportunities necessary to realize their designs and help them create realistic designs.
