Onsite Digital Fabrication Residency & Online Program Opportunities

Digital Fabrication Residency program residents gain access for 3 days to learn and gain hands-on experience with laser cutting, cnc routing, FDM 3D printing, digital embroidery and 3D scanning. Applications for the 3 Day onsite residency program must include a project proposal that outlines what the resident plans to work on while onsite. Residents are responsible for arranging their own accommodations, travel expenses, meals and if projects require materials outside of those provided.

DFR works with residents in 2 to 3 online meetings prior to their onsite visit to figure out project needs and file preparation prior to the onsite visit. This is a highly individualized opportunity to work one on one with the DFR team to develop and work through ideas on the machines and utilizing a private studio. There are basic materials supplied and residents can send materials to be ready for their onsite visit. Residents have unlimited use of the machines and DFR team during facility hours. Only one resident per 3 day period. Applicants must recommend their preferred dates on their application.There is no required software or machine experience required to apply. We select applicants based on project proposals and learning objectives that would most benefit from attending the residency.

For a more extensive project based residency session, we are also accepting applications to our Hybrid Program.Please see the program application you are applying to for information regarding residency participation fees.


DFR also offers an online program that allows artists to join weekly for group workshops, individual project meetings and submit files for 3DP, laser cutting/engraving, digital embroidery, CNC routing and more. The deadline for Spring Sessions applications is March 22, 2016. Please visit the Online Program application to see all the 2016 offered session dates.
