Dream Room

Get ready to design your dream room! Create your own 1:24 scale model while learning the principles of architecture, construction, and interior design. Each session the students will meet virtually for 90 minutes and have a follow up “homework assignment” that they will be asked to complete to prepare them for the next session. The class consists of both computer design as well as hands-on work using wood, paint, fabric, and more.

Learn about scale and proportion in order to draft a 1:24 scale room layout
Develop skills in digital drawing and preparing files for laser cutting

Build a realistic room model with laser cut windows and doors
Furnish and decorate your room by creating custom furnishings, textiles, miniature wall art, and more!
